Two-years in the making, NERVO today releases their debut album ‘Collateral’ on Ultra Music.
Spending time on the road means the new album ‘Collateral’ was created in a variety of locations and with an impressive, diverse list of collaborators including Nicky Romero, Kreayshawn and Nile Rodgers. Showcasing a refined musical outlook, the album is a deeply personal, sonic journey through all the girls have encountered during their careers to date. Detailing strong themes of heartbreak (‘You’re Gonna Love Again’), girl power (‘Hey Ricky’) and falling in love (‘It Feels’) and freeing themselves from the confines of purely club-based music, this debut LP that also showcases the songwriting talent Mim and Liv have continued to hone since their teenage years.
“There is a mix of tracks on the album and all are intended for different purposes. That's the beauty of working on an album! We didn't need to just write tracks for the dance floor; however, all tracks whether they be in their original form or through a remix, will be played in our sets.” - NERVO says
The album also features some of the tracks that helped to catapult NERVO into superstardom, including their #1 hits ‘Reason’ and ‘Hold On’ to sit alongside a raft of new material including standout track ‘The Other Boys’, featuring Chic’s Nile Rodgers and vocals from Jake Shears & Kylie Minogue.
“After Jake recorded the vocals he was hanging out with Kylie and played her the record, next thing we knew Kylie asked to feature on it. Of course we were thrilled to bits. The final addition to the track is the legend himself Nile Rodgers. Nile laid down his infamous guitar riffs and now the puzzle feels complete.” - NERVO
