NAO Returns w/ Sleek, Swaggering New Single "Fool To Love"

NAO Returns w/ Sleek, Swaggering New Single

Rejoice, good people! New music from future r&b specialist, NAO, has arrived. After teasing us with the subversive and stunning "Bad Blood" video late last year (and racking up a few end-of-year superlatives, for that matter,) NAO has returned with a whole new flame, sharing the slippery and sleek new single, "Fool To Love," with the masses. For those familiar with the edgy r&b stylings of NAO, the track should feel right at home, with NAO's flush falsetto mirroring a relentless bass line and fuzzy guitar lick; a compositional constant we imagine was picked up during her time in the studio with the other Paul brother, AK Paul.

And while there's no official word on when we expect her full-length debut album to arrive, things are certainly looking and sounding promising, especially when you consider the grip of springtime tour dates that she's announced, which are listed in their entirety below. Hear the swaggeringly confident new joint from NAO and hold tight for the British upstart's next transmission.
