Album of the week: Nerina Pallot "The Graduate"

Her last album “Fires” (2006) was a great collection of pop songs, now british singer Nerina Pallot (34) released her third one, the fantastic “The Graduate”, her best work so far.

Her music is classy pop, piano-driven with woozy electronics and beefed up bass. Her lyrics are great too and on the new album there are 10 new songs, which are all wonderful. Lyrcis are about family (Coming Home) or the ironic question why she became such a bitch (When did i become such a bitch). She also sings about “Cigarettes” or “I Don`t Want To Go Out”. Besides up-tempo songs there are 2 great ballads, “It Starts” and “It Was Me” on the only 38 minutes long album.

Pallot grew up in London with a half-french father and her indian mother. The pretty singer had a hit with “Everybody goes to war” and her second album got gold in the UK after his second release. Nerina got an Ivor Novello award and a Brit award nomination for her work. It took a long time before her new album was ready, she wrote lots of songs with other people, but in the end there are only self-written songs on “The Graduate”. The album has just been released in the UK and the single “Real Late Starter” is available worldwide. Warner will be releasing the album in Germany later. You can listen to snippets of the new album on Nerina`s website.
