Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats will return with Tearing At The Seams this spring, setting their sophomore album for a March 9 release on Stax Records. They’ve shared soothing lead single “You Worry Me” alongside the announcement—video below.
The Denver-based octet recorded Tearing at the Seams in part with producer Richard Swift (The Shins, Foxygen), with whom they worked on their acclaimed self-titled debut, released in 2015. In his review for Paste, Eric R. Danton called Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats “an engrossing album,” writing that “while the singer and his band are drawing on a classic form, their interpretation makes for an exciting and contemporary sound.”
The Head And The Heart’s 2011 self-titled debut album captured a nascent but undeniable creative partnership between six strangers thrown together by little more than a shared love of music. It became one of Sub Pop Records’ best-selling debut releases ever, and rocketed the band to acclaim well beyond its then-home base in Seattle. The formative experiences that followed both on and off the stage heavily informed the 2013 follow-up “Let’s Be Still.”
When the Head And The Heart regrouped last summer in Stinson Beach, Ca., to start writing together again, “it almost felt like we were a new band, trying things we hadn’t tried,” bassist Chris Zasche recalls. That renewed sense of purpose can be felt throughout “Signs Of Light,” the group’s first release for Warner Bros. Records. Recorded in Nashville with producer Jay Joyce (Eric Church, Cage The Elephant), “Signs Of Light” crackles with the upbeat, sing-a-long energy of the Head And The Heart’s finest work.
