SOUTH Shields singer Natasha Haws is on song for her first single.

Following the release of her debut EP in May, the talented teenager’s first single, Stranger, will be released on November 12.

Now signed to Tiny Lights Recordings, Stranger is a step towards a grander, more sophisticated sound for Natasha Haws.

The track will be available to download, as well as on limited-edition CD.

Thundering, tribal drums, alongside Natasha’s trademark elegant vocals make this a track laden with vulnerability.

It’s a tale of moral entanglements and true love’s poor-timing.

Since beginning to write her own music one year ago, Natasha has gigged around the country and racked-up support slots with acts such as The Futureheads, Stephen Fretwell, Lucy Rose, Willy Mason and Karima Francis.

She has also been hand-picked for appearances at Split Festival, Evolution Emerging and Willowman Festival this summer.

A UK tour will follow the single release, beginning November and hitting cities the length of the country.

A launch night to celebrate the single’s release will be held at Newcastle’s Literary and Philosophical Society on November 9.

The gig will feature a rare performance by singer-songwriter Lucas Renney, along with other special appearances.

The single will feature a bonus track, a cover of The Futureheads’ Heartbeat Song.

Natasha duets on the track with the band’s frontman Barry Hyde, with strings courtesy of The Futureheads’ bassist Jaff.
