Nerina Pallot - "Man Didn't Walk On the Moon" [Single] (Idaho Records)
Add Date: 09/18
Format: College, AAA
Artist Info: Meet Nerina Pallot, a smart artist who talks straight and writes beautifully. Her new album is Stay Lucky. It’s her sixth, and she’s releasing it at the age of 43. The Jersey-born, London-based musician played her first gig in 1995, which means she’s been doing this for 22 years. Is she bothered about any of those numbers? What do you think?
“I’ve only now just got a handle on my shit. I don’t know why we have this massive issue with age.”
Pallot has now “got a handle on my shit” for a number of reasons. For one thing, she wrote Stay Lucky, played guitar and piano and synths and percussion on it, produced it, and, after relationships with three different major labels, she’s releasing it on her own label, Idaho Records.
Stay Lucky was recorded over two productive weekends in London’s legendary RAK studios. The speed belies the lovely, unhurried expansiveness of an album that is, truly and deeply, her most personal, most warmly emotional album yet.
