Nash completing 'Made of Bricks' follow-up

Kate Nash has nearly finished her second album.

The ‘Foundations’ hitmaker revealed all the recording is done, with just one tune needing to be mastered before it is completed.

She said: “Everything's been recorded! And just before Christmas we did a mastering session and worked on the tracklisting. I've just been checking all the gaps, you know.

“There's one more song that needs to be mastered and all finished up. So, it's in the final stages. I'm thinking about getting the artwork together right now.”

The 22-year-old singer also said that there was a different sound to this album, the follow-up to 2007’s ‘Made of Bricks’.

She told Spin: “I spent a lot of time off experiencing life since Made of Bricks. I've grown up a lot. When I first got involved in music, I thought about music differently. You know, music is so much more than one good song.

“I really thought about that this time. '60s girl groups, Riot grrrl rock, and punk, and various others influence me. So, my influences have changed, too, definitely.”
