Timber and Steel favourite Nathaniel Rateliff has ditched the melancholic folk music and embraced blues and soul for his brand new project Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats. The newly formed project have a brand new EP out on the 19th June, simply called EP.
“These songs are about the struggles I’ve had in my life – drinking too much, that kind of crap,” Rateliff explains. “And then the relationships we all have. I’m not a great communicator in my personal life, so it’s funny to be writing songs that say the things that I’m never very good at saying.”
The full track listing for EP plus the video for the lead single “Howling At Nothing” are below:
1. Howling At Nothing
2. What I Need
4. How To Make Friends
