NAO drops her highly anticipated sophomore album Saturn today (Oct. 26), two years after the arrival of her debut album For All We Know. The 13-track LP features guest appearances from 6LACK, SiR and Kwabs alongside production by Mura Masa, GRADES and Loxe. The album is led by her previously released singles, “Make It Out Alive,” “Another Lifetime,” “Curiosity” and “If You Ever.”

“My friends kept telling me about the term ‘Saturn Returns’. It’s this idea that Saturn takes 29 years to orbit from when you’re born and it is the planet of blessings and growth,” NAO previously revealed in a press statement about her forthcoming project, breaking down the motivations and themes behind it. ”So by the time you’re around 29, between 27 and 32, something big happens in your life. It’s like waking up and coming of age, like: ‘I’ve been going through my twenties and what have I been doing in this relationship?’ What have I been doing in this job?’ You start to rethink everything – old stuff that your parents taught you or ideas that you believed in. It’s like a complete shedding of skin and it can be painful.”

You can stream NAO’s Saturn album below. She released video diaries with behind-the-scenes footage of making the album on her Youtube channel and is going on a world tour next year.
