Nadia Reid – “Get the Devil Out”
Today, Nadia Reid shares “Get The Devil Out,” a gospel-like reflection on internal demons that’s less an exorcism than a benediction. “I’m making friends with who I used to be / she’s a little shorter, a little lighter,” sings Nadia, buoyed by delicate strings and her spare fingerpicking as she comes to terms with human fragility.
Produced by Trey Pollard (Foxygen) and Matthew E. White (Natalie Prass, The Mountain Goats), the album finds Nadia embracing her new globe-trotting existence following the success of 2017’s Preservation. While the album features Nadia’s lushest arrangements to-date, at the center of it all is her immaculate, immense voice and a perspective that’s at once inquisitive and empathetic.
Under The Radar included Nadia in their 20 Acts to Watch in 2020, calling her music “an instant addiction” and saying that “the rest of the world will soon figure out that she is a necessary fixture in their listening libraries.”
Lead single “Best Thing” was deemed “gorgeous” by Brooklyn Vegan, and MOJO ranked the song in the top spot on its February playlist, deeming it “fire” and “a hymn to love, especially maternal love.” Watch the stunning video, filmed cliffside in her Dunedin hometown, here.
Nadia Reid’s 2015 debut Listen To Formation Look For The Signs was called “wonderful” (MOJO) and “a startlingly good debut” (The Guardian). 2017’s Preservation is “no less bewitching” (Uncut), a “simply breathtaking” (Record Collector) follow-up that was named MOJO’s #2 album of that year and resulted in a stirring performance on Later…with Jools Holland.
Nadia has announced an extensive UK and European tour to accompany the release of Out Of My Province. U.S. dates, including performances at SXSW, will also be announced soon.
