Dressed in custom black suits, Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats delivered a golden performance of their knockout single “Survivor” and “Baby I Got Your Number” on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.” Last night’s appearance follows the release of the band’s third studio album, The Future, which is out now on Stax Records to widespread critical praise. Watch/share the performances HERE and HERE, respectively.
Upon its release, “Survivor” moved quickly into the #1 slot at Triple A radio and debuted in the Top 25 on the Alternative Chart. The song is currently #2 on the Americana Singles Chart while The Future remains #1 on the Non-Comm Albums Chart for the sixth consecutive week.
Rateliff & The Night Sweats are also set to appear on “CBS This Morning: Saturday” this Saturday, November 13.
In addition, the band will perform at New Orleans’ Tipitina’s for SiriusXM and Pandora’s “Small Stage Series” later this week. Further 2022 dates to be announced soon, while current tour routing can be found below.
Recorded at Rateliff’s own Broken Creek Studio outside of Denver, The Future was produced by Bradley Cook (Bon Iver, Kevin Morby, The War on Drugs) and R.M.B.—the production trio of Rateliff, Patrick Meese (The Night Sweats) and James Barone (Beach House)—who were the team behind Rateliff’s acclaimed 2020 solo album And It’s Still Alright. Additional production was added by musician, engineer and producer Elijah Thompson (Father John Misty, Richard Swift) while Jenny Lewis, Jess Wolfe and Amelia Meath (Sylvan Esso) contributed backing vocals.
Earlier this year, Rateliff and the band made their debut on “Saturday Night Live” featuring the premiere performance of “Redemption,” written for and featured in the film Palmer starring Justin Timberlake. In addition, the group appeared on “CMT Crossroads” with country singer/songwriter Margo Price while Rateliff’s “Tiny Desk (Home) Concert” recently premiered at NPR Music. Following these career milestones, Rateliff released a new live album, Red Rocks 2020, which was recorded at Red Rocks Amphitheatre during Rateliff’s mid-September run of socially distanced shows.
