Nadine Shah kicks off support tour with Depeche Mode and shares new single ‘Greatest Dancer’

Nadine Shah began a run of UK and European support slots with Depeche Mode last night (January 22), and has shared a new single called ‘Greatest Dancer’ – listen below.

Per Setlist.FM, Shah treated the arena crowd to a six-track set that began with ‘Ladies For Babies (Goats For Love)’ from her 2020 album ‘Kitchen Sink’. She also played her 2023 single ‘Topless Mother’, which will appear on her upcoming fifth record ‘Filthy Underneath’.

Shah performed ‘Trad’, ‘Fool’ and an unknown song too. The penultimate cut came in the form of ‘Greatest Dancer’, the latest preview of the artist’s next LP.

According to a press release, Shah’s galloping and dark new single was “inspired by the lockdown Saturday nights that [Shah] and her late mother would spend watching Strictly Come Dancing“.

The musician shared a video of herself listening to ‘Greatest Dancer’ backstage at yesterday’s Depeche Mode gig on Instagram Stories. “Still giddy ten years in when my song comes on the radio,” Shah captioned a follow-up post.

The single is accompanied by a suitably creepy black-and-white music video, directed by Niall Trask. Tune in above.
