Nerina Pallot announces new album 'I Don't Know What I'm Doing'

Following on from the release of her highly-praised 2017 LP 'Stay Lucky' and her recent standalone offering 'Oh Berlin' in 2020, Nerina Pallot has now announced her plans for a new studio album, arriving in the summer.

The new full-length 'I Don't Know What I'm Doing' marks her seventh studio record to date, is being previewed by the new lead single 'Cold Places', and is set to be released on the 17th June via Idaho Records / InGrooves.

Speaking about the new collection, she said, "I've been doing this for over twenty years now and this is my seventh album. Supposedly I am an adult, a mother, a wife, a small business owner - and literally most days I feel clueless in a good way. It's good to be alive, doing the thing I love, feeling like every time I write a song it's the first time I've done it and that I'm still terrified just before I go on stage. Cluelessness is possibly one of the most underrated attributes in a human and I thought I'd make an album to celebrate that.

"I am very lucky I get to work with wonderful musicians and engineers, all of us very experienced, but what we have in common, I think, is both a playfulness and a sense of vocational love of music. A large part of the work was done remotely during the pandemic - and then when we were able to play together again it was magical. Ours was one of the industries most egregiously impacted by the pandemic - and since then, I don't think any of us have taken playing music in person together for granted ever again. If this is a pandemic album - as so many are currently - let this be one that celebrates loads of musicians being together, doing the thing we love most."

While adding about the new offering, "Cold Places was a real Labour of love. And sometimes hate! I started writing it in my head on a long, cold winter's walk by the Thames and then spent two years trying to get that feeling to come alive in the song production. I wanted it to feel like a dream, like a subconscious lullaby that stays with the listener long after they have heard it. It was always going to need a huge production; a lot of my listening is classical, and so I asked the amazing arranger Sally Herbert (Florence and the Machine, Zero 7) to go to town on something that was both huge and precise, but that also felt like a mini symphony in itself. Once her beautiful arrangement was in, the song fell into place and I knew I had both a finished song and an album."
