Bristol, England's Billy Nomates -- whose debut was one of our favorite albums of 2020 -- has just released her first single of 2022. "Blue Bones" is an immediately infectious song that owes a little to country, a little to pop and sounds like only Billy Nomates. It was coproduced by Geoff Barrow (Portishead, Beak>) and is out via his label Invada Records

“Like everything I write, after I've written it I spend the following months unraveling what it's about," says Billy. "I think 'Blue Bones' is a candid conversation with my own depression. A part of me I have to talk to.” You can watch the video, directed by Tia Salisbury, that is a bittersweet look at the end of a relationship, below.

Let's hope there's an album to go with this soon. Billy's also got some UK tour dates lined up for the fall, and before that will play the Ukraine benefit in Bristol that's headlined by IDLES and features a special set from Portishead. All dates are listed below.
