Song of the Day: Nina June – Out To Sea

Nina June drops last single before Bon Voyage album release
Nina June’s album Bon Voyage has been a long time coming, but it is almost here! Nina dropped the first track for love back in 2015 and kept on writing and recording until she created a body of work that felt like an album, she explained in a soon to be published interview with A Bit of Pop Music. The Dutch singer and songwriter released her most recent (and quite fantastic may I add) single ‘Till Dawn’ at the end of last year and she is ready to move on with the next one. ‘Out To Sea’ is out now and it is the last track to be released before the album sees the light of day on the 23rd of March!

June produced ‘Out To Sea’ together with longterm collaborator Lieuwe Roonder and Tim Bran, who worked with stars like Rae Morris, London Grammar and Halsey before. In an interview with A Bit of Pop Music June explained how ‘Out To Sea’ was the last song she wrote for Bon Voyage. “It felt like the story of the album had come full circle with this track. While the first song ‘For Love’ describes the search for meaning within our generation, ‘Out To Sea’ is all about freeing yourself, going where you feel at home and finding who you truly are.”

Just like its predecessor ‘Till Dawn’, ‘Out To Sea’ follows a slightly more poppy direction with a simply undeniable hook in the chorus. The low key swinging midtempo number starts out quietly with Nina’s dreamy vocals subtly building up to the chorus. The production is laidback, but beautifully layered and the stunning middle-eight elevates ‘Out To Sea’ even higher. This track like no other showcases what Nina June is capable of; a brilliant hook, a detailed production that brings out the best in the composition and of course her soaring vocals. As if we weren’t excited enough for Bon Voyage, she takes us to the next level! Bon Voyage is out on the 23rd of March and keep an eye on A Bit of Pop Music to read an interview about the creation of the record!
