Listen to the title song from Nicole Atkins’ forthcoming album, Goodnight Rhonda Lee
Singer-songwriter Nicole Atkins has announced a new album, Goodnight Rhonda Lee, due out on July 21st on Single Lock Records, the label co-founded by singer-songwriter John Paul White, Ben Tanner of Alabama Shakes and Will Trapp.
About the new album, Atkins’ says in her bio:
“This record came to me at a time of deep transition. Some days were good, some not so good. What I did gain, though, from starting to make some changes and going inward, and putting it out on the table, was a joy in what I do again. Joy in the process and a newfound confidence that I don’t think I’ve ever had until now. The album title, Goodnight Rhonda Lee, also came from those feelings. Rhonda Lee was kind of my alias for bad behavior, and it was time to put that persona to bed.”
One of the changes Atkins’ went through was becoming sober, and the songs reflect this transitional period of time for her. With a golden voice like an angel, this new classic from her shines brightly.
Nicole is playing this Tuesday, May 2nd at Union Transfer, opening for Old 97’s; more information on the show can be found at the XPN Concert Calendar. Listen to “Goodnight Rhonda Lee” below.
