Kate Nash’s second album, My Best Friend Is You, is set for vinyl reissue through UMC/Polydor Records, on 29 March.
Originally released in April 2010, My Best Friend Is You, was the follow-up to the London-born singer-songwriter’s chart-topping debut, Made Of Bricks, which won the award for Best British Female Artist at the 2008 BRIT Awards.
Commercially, My Best Friend Is You, followed in the footsteps of the platinum-selling Made Of Bricks, peaking inside the UK Top 10 and also making a strong showing on North America’s Billboard 200. The album also featured three official singles in ‘Kiss That Girl’, ‘I’ve Got A Secret’ and the Bernard Butler-produced, Ronettes-inspired ‘Do-Wah-Doo’, which climbed to No. 15 in the UK.
To promote the album, Nash appeared on John Kennedy’s XFM show Xposure, where they did a track-by-track interview playing the whole of the album. The record also went on to garner considerable acclaim, with The Irish Times declaring that the Kate Nash of My Best Friend Is You “again displays how well she observes and reflects the condition of young women today” and The Guardian proclaiming that “Kate Nash has spent the three years since achieving fame cooking up a record that’s a substantial progression from the kitchen-sink pop of her No 1 debut.”
Since the release of My Best Friend Is You, Kate Nash has gone on to release two further studio albums, 2013’s Girl Talk and 2018’s Yesterday Was Forever. Aside from her music, she has pursued a successful acting career, appearing in various films and TV shows. Most notably, she starred in the 2012 film Greetings from Tim Buckley, as well as the 2013 films Powder Room and Syrup. Since 2017, Nash has starred in the Netflix series GLOW as Rhonda “Britannica” Richardson.
