Nao’s third studio album And Then Life Was Beautiful is officially set to arrive on Sept 24. Luckily for her fans, Nao is treating already them with a live performance of the album’s title track to enhance the project’s theme. While surrounded by beautiful women and sunflowers in an empty church, Nao shows off her angelic vocals:

Change came like a hurricane2020 hit us differently, and even though I didn’t want it, this old life got a hold of me/ How to float when there’s no control? Feeling life or nothing at all/ Smoke it up ‘til it fades away, seein’ clouds, flyin’ aeroplanes

That’s when you know what matters to you,hope will come someday soon/ Been in the darkness for a while, we’ll see the rays shinin’ down (Shinin’ down)/ And then life was beautiful (Beautiful, beautiful) feel the waves ‘til we rise

Last month, Nao shared a preview of what’s to come by releasing her “Messy Love” single, which arrived accompanied by a stunning visual directed by Lisette Donkersloot. Prior to that, she enlisted an assist from Adekunle Gold for their beautiful collab track “Antidote.” Nao explained the inspiration behind “Antidote” on social media. “We wrote ‘Antidote’ as a musical remedy 4 U during these times and as an ode to our daughters, who were both born weeks apart from each other during the pandemic,” she wrote. “They filled us with love. They were our Antidote to all that was happening in the world. This song is a summer remedy for your winter days.”

“Antidote” followed last year’s “Woman,” featuring Lianne La Havas. Both tracks will appear on the follow up project to Saturn. The forthcoming body of work is set to be released sometime later on this year. In 2016, Nao unleashed her debut project titled For All We Know.
