Split Second 3:250:00 / 3:25
“Nazneen sings her wonderful songs in an intimate way making you feel she is singing just for you. Each song is a part of a story told by the album, once you play the first song you have to listen to them all. 'I'm Too Old To Die Young' is a great album.”
Nazneen Rahman is a London based singer-songwriter and scientist. She writes songs about your life, about everyone's life. From the mundane to the magical. Her lyrically driven songs capture you with rich storytelling and velvet vocals that listeners describe as emotional, honest, tender, sensual. Nazneen has committed her working life to cancer research. Music has been an equal passion which she started sharing with debut album 'Can't Clip My Wings' in 2014 and 'Answers No Questions' in 2017. Now with her most ambitious album, 'I'm Too Old To Die Young', she takes listeners on a journey contemplating our fragile, changing relationships with Time, Aging and Identity. The ten original songs chart a complementary musical journey, with sophisti-pop, jazz and folktronic influences that feel both fresh and timeless.
In March 2017 there was a terrorist attack on the UK government. I was there that day. Such events remind us of the fragility of life. How everything can change in a Split Second. How every moment counts.
I wrote this song a few days later. Thanks for listening.
Split Second is the first single from ‘I’m Too Old To Die Young’.
