There’s a lovely retro sound and look to the new video from Nicole Atkins, ‘Captain’, which features backing vocals from Spoon’s Britt Daniels. Her new album, ‘Italian Ice’, is out on 17th April and features an impressive line-up of players, including members of The Bad Seeds, Midlake, Seth Avett and John Paul White, amongst many others. Atkins says of the group: “Musically, it doesn’t make any sense but I’m a superfan of all of them and we ended up with the weirdest, craziest band ever. It just became this awesome misfit party.” The album promises a blend of all the muscial genres to be found in Atkins’ record collection from honky tonk to symphonic pop with a little punk thrown in. One to look out for.
