NATHANIEL RATELIFF ‘And It’s Still Alright’


Available on backorder


He is a journeyman and a musical omnivore, and Nathaniel Rateliff’s third solo album and first in 7 years is a testament to both his staying power and to his impressive vocal ability. Though the majority of his fame has come via his work with The Night Sweats, Rateliff started out as a singer-songwriter, making his way through a host of collaborators prior to 2015, releasing two excellent solo studio albums in 2010 (In Memory of Loss) and 2013 (Falling Faster Than You Can Run). Taking a break from The Night Sweats to pour himself back into his solo work, And It’s Still Alright was motivated largely by Rateliff’s desire to explore the depth of emotion he was struggling with via his divorce and the death of his dear friend and frequent collaborator Richard Swift. The result is an album that is perhaps less dynamic or unpredictable than his past solo work but also much more cohesive, consistent, and above all, confident.
