Nadine Shah has announced that her new album Kitchen Sink will be released by Infectious on June 5.
Watch a video for the first single “Ladies For Babies (Goats For Love)” below:
“My brother was making a comment on sexism when he was younger and made a painting of a man embracing a goat with the phrase ‘ladies for babies, goats for love’,” Shah explains. “It always stuck with me, I guess cause it sounded daft but really because even back then I knew its true meaning and intent.
“I was also thinking about a lot of the songs I would have been listening to at the time, songs I sang along to innocently without question of the meaning. ‘Ladies For Babies’ is a direct response to ‘All That She Wants’ by Ace Of Base. I reversed the gender and I poke fun at a husband who expects nothing more from me, as a wife, than to carry his child and perform the role of the obeying subservient trophy wife. Only this time the mistress is a farmyard animal. A lot of my album explores subjects of sexism and tradition. It’s not all about bestiality, I promise.”
