Watch: Nancy Elizabeth video
Published 30 May 2013 by BWL

Nancy Elizabeth has just unveiled a video for her latest single, 'Simon Says Dance’. Filmed at Islington Mill in Salford, not far from Nancy's Manchester home, the enchanting clip was produced by BLOC+BLUR Creative Studio. Clash magazine ran a premiere yesterday and you can also watch the video below (or on Vimeo).

The video uses the radically different single version of 'Simon Says Dance’, which is the second track to be lifted from Nancy’s third album, Dancing. The single is released digitally on June 17, and contains the single and album versions of the track, along with several remixes: an exuberant disco version by Manchester’s Science Girl (formerly of Mighty Mouse, and long before that Chapter And The Verse), an unexpected take by hip hop producer Paul White and a restrained piano-and-cello version by our own Matthew Bourne.

Dancing is out now, and you can order it here. Nancy embarks on a UK tour towards the end of June (full details can be found on our live page).
