NAO To Land Back In Music’s Orbit With ‘Saturn’ Album Announcement

Music News

Two years in the making, songstress NAO has announced the Oct. 26 release of her sophomore album, Saturn. The “DYWM” singer revealed the news on her social media platforms (Sept. 7) to high praise and increased the soundscape’s anticipation with her press release statement.

“My friends kept telling me about the term ‘Saturn Returns’. It’s this idea that Saturn takes 29 years to orbit from when you’re born and it is the planet of blessings and growth,” NAO said. “So by the time you’re around 29, between 27 and 32, something big happens in your life. It’s like waking up and coming of age, like: ‘I’ve been going through my twenties and what have I been doing in this relationship?’ What have I been doing in this job?’ You start to rethink everything – old stuff that your parents taught you or ideas that you believed in. It’s like a complete shedding of skin and it can be painful.”

The 13-track album features Kwabs, and SiR who was featured on NAO’s current single, “Make It Out Alive.” Fans were also treated to the stunning “Another Lifetime,” and now only have to wait over a month to hear what else is in store. Saturn also follows the 2016 release of NAO’s debut effort, For All We Know.
