New Album ‘The Future’

Out November 5, 2021

New Video “Survivor”

For The Future (via Stax Records), Nathaniel Rateliff and The Night Sweats escaped to Rateliff’s new Colorado studio Broken Creek to write an album’s worth of songs.

“I look at the album overall as a big question. When I was writing the record we were in the middle of a pandemic and our future looked pretty bleak. I just continue to try to write from a place of hope. Then my own neurosis, and maybe being a Libra gets in the way, and I can’t make up my mind. There is this constant back and forth battle in me personally and I am sure that comes out in my writing.”

The album was produced by Bradley Cook (Bon Iver, Kevin Morby, The War on Drugs) and the production trio of Rateliff, Patrick Meese and James Barone who were the team behind their acclaimed 2020 solo album And It’s Still Alright. Additional production was added by musician, engineer and producer Elijah Thompson while Jenny LewisJess Wolfe and Amelia Meath contributed backing vocals.

The Future’s lead single “Survivor” has debuted. The song speaks to one’s vulnerable reckoning with adulthood and its responsibilities. Rateliff concludes the song by singing “I’m afraid that the weight of the world is catching up to you / I’m afraid to admit that it’s catching up to me too / Does the weight continue to grow until it finally buries you?” 

Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats are Rateliff (vocals, guitar), Joseph Pope III (bass), Meese (drums, percussion, keys), Luke Mossman (guitar), Mark Shusterman (organ, keys), Andreas Wild (saxophone), Daniel Hardaway (trumpet) and Jeff Dazey (saxophone).
