Recorded in London and Bristol with producer John Parish Another Life is the second album by British-Lebanese musician Nadine Khouri.

Another Life is the second album by British-Lebanese singer-songwriter Nadine Khouri. Recorded with producer John Parish the album extends a partnership that began with Khouri's acclaimed 2017 debut The Salted Air.
The album, which was both allowed space to grow and simultaneously held back by the COVID-19 pandemic, was borne of a malaise that had long since been settling in for Khouri. The increasingly vitriolic attitude to immigrants seen in the UK since Brexit paired with the isolation of lockdown, and as a first generation immigrant herself, Khouri struggled to understand her place.
Fans of Khouri's music so far will recognise her distinct and minimalistic approach to both vocals and music alike: the serene, dreamlike quality to her songs, suffused with otherworldly, beatific textures. But Another Life offers a delicate rearrangement of her earlier sound. The sparse, acoustic production of her first album is replaced with a more naturalistic approach.
The album touches on that which has been lost - from life in a pre-social media world, to a city that no longer looks the same, or the ghosts of those we've left behind (the late, great singer Lhasa de Sela is also referenced in tribute.) 'When the pandemic happened and I was stuck between four walls in London,' says Khouri, 'it was hard not to start excavating the past. I was writing so that I wouldn't forget a lot of things for good.'
Khouri began her career as an acoustic singer-songwriter in NYC before moving to London and being discovered by Parish. Her debut was hailed by MOJO as 'A thing of dark possessed beauty' in their four-star album review, celebrated by Q as a Critics Choice record, and selected as one of Rough Trade's Albums of the Year in 2017.
Since the album's release, Khouri has performed in Europe's most prestigious venues. In 2018 Khouri toured with Low, shared the stage with This is the Kit, Josh T Pearson, and Laura Gibson.
