'Nuc' was released by Mercury KX on 14 April 2023 and launched in Sheffield with Music in the Round and has since been named by The Guardian as a Top Ten Contemporary Album of 2023.

It started life as a conversation between Anna Meredith and Richard Jones (Ligeti Quartet’s viola player) after realising that after a decade of frequently working together, they had almost an album’s worth of music. So an idea developed in which they would not only make the first studio recordings of Anna’s original music for string quartet, but that Richard (whose previous collaborations include Alex Turner, Jessie Ware and The Waeve), would create new arrangements of existing tracks by Anna including from her award-winning electronic and dance albums.

The result is a joyful, occasionally furious, never too serious, energetic/restful collection of tracks which dazzle with Anna’s signature compulsive harmonies, rhythmic shifts of gear and sparkling textures.
