First solo album from Nathaniel Rateliff in almost 7 years, and two major life events shaped the writing of And It's Still Alright: a divorce and the death of a friend and collaborator, Richard Swift, who produced two of Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats' two critically acclaimed albums. As such, the songs are quieter, melancholic, and more reflective and although there is a thick air of melancholy, Rateliff does not lose hope. The singer-songwriter's work with The Night Sweats is distinguished by the urgent, exuberant soul that drives the sound, and this record showcases Rateliff stepping out of his comfort zone and finding new depths while "embarking on a person exploration of loss, loss and perseverance." Check out the title track, dedicated to Swift, as well as "All Or Nothing," "Mavis," "Time Stands" and "Kissing Our Friends."
