Old Etonian Nadim Naaman is to release his debut album We All Want The Same. It features 11 original songs written by Nadim over the past ten years, the album spans pop, jazz, R’n'B, and musical theatre. The album also features a song co-written and performed by OE Will Barratt,who is currently playing Bob Crewe in Jersey Boys in the West End.
Limited edition signed copies of the album are now available to pre-order, and previews can be heard, at nadim.auburnjam.co.uk. The album will be available for download via all major online retailers from August 23rd.
Nadim says of the album: “All the songs tell their own story – some are about me, some are about other people, and some inspired by places, events and memories – for example, Winter In Paris was inspired by a photograph, and ‘July 7th (For A Lost Son)’ was written after I watched a documentary on the 2005 bombings in London. Then there are some more personal ones which will speak for themselves. The songs all started in my living room, either on my piano or guitar, and my producer, Joe Davison, has transformed them into so much more. I played them all to him, and we spoke about ideas for arrangement and instrumentation – now almost every song is in a different style, yet still all under the one umbrella theme of the album. The songs definitely have a musical theatre flavour, but are more pop/rock than show-tune.”
