NAO Announces 'Saturn' LP, Plots Tour
Published Sep 07, 2018After sharing the SiR-assisted "Make It Out Alive" late last month, NAO has now let loose the details behind a new full-length album.
Titled Saturn, NAO's sophomore effort will arrive October 26 through Little Tokyo Recordings. Thirteen tracks in length, the album is said to reflect "the process of embracing adulthood and contemplating the naivety of youth."
"My friends kept telling me about the term 'Saturn Returns,'" NAO explained in a press release. "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. So by the time you're around 29, between 27 and 32, something big happens in your life."
She continued: "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."
Alongside the announcement, NAO has also mapped out a world tour behind the album. A December date in Japan will give way to a run of North America in January, with Canadian dates set for Toronto and Montreal.
You can find a complete North American tour itinerary below. NAO will also tour Europe and UK in March, and you can find dates for those shows over here.
