Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats announce new EP 'What If I'

Following on from the release of their much-loved 2021 studio album 'The Future', Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats have now announced their plans for a new EP, arriving in the coming months.

The new five-track collection 'What If I' is being previewed by the new lead single ‘What If I’ (Cook Brothers Version), a re-styling of a track from their latest LP, and is set to be released on the 2nd June via Stax/Fantasy.

Speaking about the new offering, Rateliff said, “We loved this song on The Future, but man is it hard for us to sing live. Not just me, but Pat Meese (drums, percussion, keys) and Mark Shusterman (organ, keys) are screaming their harmonies. So, we wanted another version to add to some of the other songs we held back from the full length. I gave it over to Bradley Cook and Phil Cook...Phil arranged the piano part he wrote around just my vocal and added a simple clap. Pat, Mark, and Luke Mossman (guitar) added some extra sounds to Phil’s arrangement while we were on the road, along with shaker and cabasa from Matt McCaughan. I love the way this version turned out.”
