Our Song of the Day is a very welcome return from Nathaniel Rateliff. ‘Still Trying‘ is a track taken from his new album ‘Falling Faster Than You Can Run‘ which will be released on Mod y Vi Records/Thirty Tigers on November 26th.
Nathaniel has been touring hard since the release of In Memory of Loss which was released back in 2010, the year I first saw him making his Irish debut appearance at Open House Festival in Belfast. He put on an unforgettable performance and has since gone on to gather a large fan base and this album will garner him a heap more, guaranteed! Still Trying is just a little glimpse of the man at his best…a sure winner!
Produced by Nathaniel and Jamie Mefford and recorded at Hideaway Studios, it is a stunning collection of eleven frank, heartfelt and astonishingly self-reflective tales of love, life and all the possible pitfalls in between. Of the release, Nathaniel says “this album came about over a couple years of touring. I was coming from a place on intense isolation. Despite the fact that I was always around other people I always felt a true sense of loneliness”.
Currently on tour in the US with The Lumineers and Dr. Dog, Nathaniel is set to return to the UK for a series of dates early next year.
