The Future, the third studio album from Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, is out now on Stax Records. Fans can listen to/share the new record HERE.
The new music continues to receive critical praise:
“Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats’ glorious new vintage R&B album, bursting at the seams with fresh coolness. It has a sound grounded in the past but not mimicking it, a fresh, modern-retro vibe that makes sense once you listen.” — Associated Press
“…a giant leap forwards…” — MOJO
“Masterful” — Uncut
“The Future showcases Rateliff and The Night Sweats playing at the top of their game with a blend of passionate songwriting, raw and towering vocals, and infectious soul rock vibes.” — No Depression
“Nathaniel Rateliff has become a consistently shining purveyor of classic tunes.” — San Francisco Chronicle
“The Future effectively combines provocative lyrics married to the Sweats’ trademarked attack; one that’s successful, even triumphant, and paves the way for more of the same in forthcoming endeavors.” — Holler
“The new album expands on their musical styles without abandoning their roots and is also a thematic wrestling with the spirits of our times.” — Popmatters
In addition, the band will play their knockout single “Survivor” on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” November 9 and are also set to appear on “CBS This Morning: Saturday” November 13.
Following its release in August, “Survivor” moved quickly into the #1 slot at Triple A radio and debuted in the Top 25 on the Alternative Chart. The song is currently #2 on the Americana Singles Chart while The Future remains #1 on the Non-Comm Albums Chart for the sixth consecutive week. Additionally, the latest installment of Night Sweats Radio with Nathaniel Rateliff premieres today on SiriusXM’s The Spectrum. The one-hour show features Rateliff as host, with a member of The Night Sweats, sharing hand-picked music and conversation with guests about their new record. The episode airs at 10 a.m. ET on the channel, via satellite and on the SXM app.
Rateliff & The Night Sweats will perform an album release show tonight at New York’s Beacon Theatre, which will also be livestreamed via FANS.live. The band will play an additional show at New Orleans’ Tipitina’s for SiriusXM and Pandora’s “Small Stage Series” later this month. Further 2022 dates to be announced soon, while current tour routing can be found below.
Recorded at Rateliff’s own Broken Creek Studio outside of Denver, The Future was produced by Bradley Cook (Bon Iver, Kevin Morby, The War on Drugs) and R.M.B.—the production trio of Rateliff, Patrick Meese (The Night Sweats) and James Barone (Beach House)—who were the team behind Rateliff’s acclaimed 2020 solo album And It’s Still Alright. Additional production was added by musician, engineer and producer Elijah Thompson (Father John Misty, Richard Swift) while Jenny Lewis, Jess Wolfe and Amelia Meath (Sylvan Esso) contributed backing vocals.
Earlier this year, Rateliff and the band made their debut on “Saturday Night Live” featuring the premiere performance of “Redemption,” written for and featured in the film Palmer starring Justin Timberlake. In addition, the group appeared on “CMT Crossroads” with country singer/songwriter Margo Price while Rateliff’s “Tiny Desk (Home) Concert” recently premiered at NPR Music as well. Following these career milestones, Rateliff released a new live album, Red Rocks 2020, which was recorded at Red Rocks Amphitheatre during Rateliff’s mid-September run of socially distanced shows.
