The song is taken from her first studio album in six years ‘9 Sad Symphonies’, due for release on June 21 via Kill Rock Stars (pre-order/pre-save here).

Nash said ‘My Bile’ is “about being at your wits’ end and having nothing left to give to society’s expectation of you, and I guess reassessing past behaviours and current priorities. You know you’re on empty when you’re spewing up bile.

“I’ve realised I need more reserves for myself,” she continued. “I’m at a point in my life where I want to say ‘no’ to things and ‘no’ to people. And I’m in my mid-30s, so if I don’t do that I end up with an injury or a migraine. At this point, I’m confident that I’m a hardworking and compassionate person, so I trust my instincts when I want to tell someone to shut up or fuck off. I’ve also worked hard on biting my tongue, so if the instinct is there I allow myself to trust it. Whenever I regret something it’s usually because I didn’t listen to my instincts sooner.

“After all the shit and abhorrent behaviors I’ve seen over the years, I’ve realized that it does take a toll on your self-worth if you don’t have strict boundaries. Life throws surprises at you too, so you have to accept you can’t control all of it, but not everyone’s invited to my birthday party anymore. If I’ve got cake, I’m saving slices for the best, not for the masses.” Listen to

So far, Nash has released three other previews of the album: February’s ‘Change‘, March’s ‘Millions Of Heartbeats‘, and April’s romantic ‘Space Odyssey 2001‘.

A press release says Nash’s new album “begins a new and unprecedented artistic journey” and draws on “inspiration from old Hollywood glamour, vintage musicals, and the relentless pursuit of beauty in a chaotic world.”

Nash has once again teamed up with Danish producer Frederick Thaae on her new album, having last worked with him on her musical.

“We were in this completely different landscape for writing songs [on the musical], which was completely freeing,” Nash said in a statement. “I was writing for a story, I was writing about a King and a Queen and a proper story arc. In that world you need the audience to understand the songs immediately, it’s very direct, and it has lots of editing which I’d never done. It changed my outlook on songwriting. Also, we said at the beginning that we wanted to make something beautiful, nothing harsh. I’ve done a lot of harsh stuff before. We wanted loads of beautiful string arrangements.”

The singer’s last studio album, ‘Yesterday Was Forever’, was released back in 2018 via Grrrl Gang. She has since shared a string of standalone singles including ‘Imperfect’ and ‘Wasteman’.

Nash has also worked as an actor in recent years, starring in the Netflix series GLOW as Rhonda ‘Britannica’ Richardson, and appearing in various other titles.
