Kate Nash
‘I Just Love You More’

When Kate Nash told Paste magazine earlier this year that her upcoming Bernard Butler-produced second album (out April 19) was trying to “mix The Supremes and Bikini Kill”, it sounded like she might be wading into more interesting territory than the overshined pop of her debut. Based on “a little poem” – and it really must have been little as there are barely any lyrics – what new track ‘I Just Love You More’ confirms this and, above all, shows she’s certainly been having fun trying to hit that fuzz-pop sweet spot. Whooping and wailing like it’s early ’90s Olympia all over again, Kate rages like a bunny boiler, working herself up over chugging (in a palatable pop way) guitars until she reaches a breathless ba-ba-ba crescendo underscored by violins. It might come as a shock to fans of ‘Foundations’ and the like, but we reckon it’s actually a pretty smart move by Kate. And we’re glad she’s toned down that accent. The first single proper from the as yet untitled album will be ‘Doo Wah Doo’ on April 12. MP3 after the jump.

But first, here’s a message from Kate to any budding writers:

“I’ve made quite a lovely little limited edition book that comes with the album. I’ve asked a few people to write for me for ‘My Ignorant Youth’ before and I got such nice things, I thought I would ask again, Please send a story/poem/statement/piece of writing about the first time you met your lover, the first time you fell in love, the first time you saw Robert Pattinson on the silver screen and those piercing eyes just shot right through you, actually this is taken, anyway send me a story about falling in love with somebody and why and how, it can be funny, romantic, sad, heartbreaking, disturbing, creepy, beautiful, sweet any of the above and whatever else you can think of. If I like it, I’ll use it in the book. Make it about 300/400 words. or less or a little bit more. Thanks. Send it to have10p@hotmail.co.uk
