Finally enjoying some time away from the road, NAO has revealed that she's breaking ground on the follow-up to her stellar 2016 debut, For All We Know.

HEAR: NAO's For All We Know Remix EP ft. Kaytranada, SBTRKT, Mura Masa and More

Earlier this week, the British singer claimed she was "in hiding writing my next album" per Twitter, but promised new music would arrive by week's end. And now, she makes good, sharing her first single since the release of a remix project that featured Kaytranada, Mura Masa, Sam Gellaitry, SBTRKT and more sharing their respective takes on For All We Know album cuts. "Nostalgia" finds the singer dipping her pen back into the purple wellspring churning out an electric gem, reminiscent of The Time circa '84, or even Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis' work with The SOS Band and Janet Jackson.
