Nate Currin Set To Release 'The Madman and The Poet'

Rising Southern singer/songwriter Nate Currin recently released the official music video for his current single “Midnight Train.” The video premiered exclusively on The Boot and can be seen here. The video was shot on location in southern California’s Joshua Tree State Park and the swamps of central Florida. The juxtaposition of these two distinct locales makes for a compelling and gorgeously made video that only adds to the tension of the song’s narrative. Nate had this to say about the track: “Midnight Train hearkens back to the days where southern rock, gritty country, and rock n roll all came together in a seamless blend of beauty and organic decay. The story is of a memory the writer has of a girl from the past, a true southern beauty who breaks his heart as he leaves the South behind, trading love for the road but nonetheless haunted by the memory of the 'one who got away'."

“Midnight Train” is featured on the highly anticipated album The Madman and The Poet which drops on April 15th. The album is the follow up to 2014’s You and I are Ghosts record and features some of Nate’s most compelling and emotionally charged tracks to date. Nate recently talked about his vision for the record: "The Madman and The Poet is a concept album, a 2-sided feature that shows the dichotomy between the beautiful things in life and the dark and introspective times that leave us shrouded in questions. The first half of the album, the Madman, is a darker and more gritty collection of songs, both stylistically and thematically, with more of a bluesy rock-n-roll feel, while the second half, the Poet, is a lighter and often times happier song collection that is more acoustic musically.”

As anticipated, Nate will be headed out on the road this Spring in support of The Madman and The Poet. For a full list of dates visit To stay current with all things Nate, be sure to follow him on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
