Published Jan 08, 2020After teasing new material late last year, Nathaniel Rateliff has confirmed plans for his first solo record in seven years. The album, titled And It's Still Alright, will arrive February 14 via Stax Records.
Today, the artist has shared the record's title track alongside its Rett Rogers-directed music video. Rateliff wrote the song following the passing of his longtime friend and producer to Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats' two acclaimed records, Richard Swift.
"I think I always want to see hope in the darkness," Rateliff said in a statement, "And I like to try to share that. I always try to write from a perspective of trying to approach everything very honestly, even if it leaves me vulnerable. But overall, it's almost like I'm a different character when I'm writing for myself. I think this album is a reminder that we all go through hardship, but regardless of the hardship everything ends up where it's supposed to. I still continue to live, and I still continue to find joy. I think that's the theme of the record."

And It's Still Alright follows 2013's Falling Faster Than You Can Run.
