Video: Nathaniel Rateliff “And It’s Still Alright”

It’s Nathaniel Rateliff.  What’s not to like?  This is the title track from Rateliff’s first solo album in seven years, due out on 14th February.  It’s a beautiful song, showcasing Rateliff’s characterful vocals and masterful song writing.  It’s theme is the passing of his friend Richard Swift, who produced two albums for Nathaniel Rateliff and the Night Sweats. Ultimately, Rateliff finds hope in difficult times and this became the theme of an album that was originally focused on a faltering relationship.  Rateliff explains: “I think I always want to find hope in the darkness, and I like to try to share that.”  The full album promises more reflective, introspective pieces like this.  Rateliff Rateliff’s forthcoming European tour includes a few dates in the UK and Ireland in April and May.
