Hear NAO’s Soulful, Sparkling New Single, ‘Fool To Love’

The British star's debut album is due out later this year

British electro-R&B newcomer NAO just premiered her “Bad Blood” follow-up on BBC Radio with Annie Mac.

The new one, “Fool To Love,” is rife with smooth horns, chopped-up drum sections, and NAO’s quick to mesmerize crooning, itself an instrument unlike any else. The Disclosure collaborator’s warbly vocals have this scratchy anchor to them that works as a sort of double-edged blade; her songs are both totally driven by soul and rock influences from the past but they never languish there. Instead, NAO propels her sound eons into the future.

Hear “Fool To Love” below and look for NAO’s debut album — “It is nearly finished,” she told Mac today — later this year.
