Tinashe Returns With New Song “Talk To Me Nice”
American singer-songwriter Tinashe returned with a new song “Talk To Me Nice” on July 21, 2023.
It is her first solo release in two years since the 2021 album “333”.
Also, the song is the first single off of her upcoming sixth studio album “BB/ANG3L”, which is expected to be released in 2023.
The track was written by Tinashe Kachingwe, Jason Chung, Elijah Blue Molina, and James Wrighter. Produced by Nosaj Thing and Scoop Deville.
Tinashe said of the song, “‘Talk To Me Nice’ is an exploration of identity within genre. As someone who has constantly felt drawn to create in the gray areas between genres, I have found that I feel most myself there. Furthermore, it explores the feeling of being on the edge of a relationship and looking at it with skepticism, self-preservation, and self-confidence.”
- The accompanying music video was directed by Bradley Calder.
Tinashe said of the video, “I wanted to show the act of shedding an old skin, a previous version of myself, in a literal way. I always love to evolve and experiment as an artist in new unconventional ways for each album; and as I enter a new era creatively I felt inspired to peel back a layer and get to the raw, unfiltered core of who I am.”
She continued, “I explored the concepts of identity and perception as the video progresses, noticing different distortions of myself in various glasses of water— a metaphor for how I may be perceived by others. The source of that water, a slow drip from the ceiling, eventually covers me, washing away any remaining traces of who I once was and clearing space to begin anew.”
The new album is her first project under her new label Nice Life Recording Company.
She said, “For BB/ANG3L I was very inspired by the concept of identity. Exploring both how I self-identify and also challenging the perceptions of others. I believe how we identify in this world is ultimately our own personal choice; and I’ve enjoyed stripping back layers of aesthetic fluff, smoke & mirrors, and white noise to get down to the core of myself. Who we are at a core level, when we are alone - raw & unfiltered, is what I want this album to reflect.”
