Nathaniel Rateliff - The Future LP
With the highly anticipated new album The Future Nathaniel Rateliff once again demonstrates that he is a writer and performer of the highest order. The third full-length from Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats showcases his unique observations of our world and people's ongoing struggle in learning how to better understand each other.
"I look at the album overall as a big question," notes Rateliff. "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."
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 (Lucius) and Amelia Meath (Sylvan Esso) contributed backing vocals.
