It's about gaslighting...

Nadine Shah has shared her new single 'Buckfast'.

The songwriter's new album 'Kitchen Sink' has been pushed back slightly, and will now land on June 26th.

New single 'Buckfast' leads the way, and in spite of its title the track isn't actually about the potent tonic wine.

"Definitely not my drink of choice or one that I would admit to drinking anyway," she jokes in the press note. "I like the idea that it is brewed by Benedictine monks though, makes it seem that bit classier."

Instead, 'Buckfast' is actually a song about hiding "our bad habits, the 'food too embarrassing', unworthy of our Instagram feed. The food we scrape together when we feel so shite and can’t take ourselves to the shop so make up a concoction of condiments left over from old Indian takeaways and cut the corner of mould off the bread meals."

As ever with Nadine's work, there is a potent personal edge, with the caustic vocal stepping away from a negative situation.

She concludes: "'Buckfast' is about a toxic relationship, it’s about gaslighting."
