Nadia Reid debuts new song in gorgeous live session (watch)
Nadia Reid, who released one of our favorite albums of 2017 with Preservation and who we named one of the best new(ish) artists of 2017, has debuted a new song, "The Other Side of the Wheel," in a live session for New Zealand's RNZ Music. It was filmed on a park bench in Nadia's hometown of Port Chalmers, and it includes gorgeous nature footage and you can hear tuis (a bird native to Aotearoa) chirping in the background. The song is just Nadia with an acoustic guitar, but it immediately registers as music just as strong as the more fleshed-out material on Preservation. Watch above.
Meanwhile, Nadia has some New Zealand/Australia dates coming up, including one on Tuesday (3/27) with Jason Isbell in Auckland. That's a great double bill.
