Goodnight Rhonda Lee Out July 21 on Single Lock Records

Atkins doesn't treat getting sober and navigating major life transitions as a somber affair… Audacious is more like it, and her album's all the more riveting for her resistance to being buttoned-up… animated by a spirit of impulsiveness, it's also very much the product of artful craft, burnished not only by the symphonic production, but her Brill Building-style grasp of rich melody and sturdy structure.” - NPR First Listen

Summer Tour Continues, Including Newport Folk Festival, Wildwood Revival, Lock’n and More

(tour dates below)

Nicole Atkins has shared her new album, Goodnight Rhonda Lee, today via NPR’s First Listen. The album, Goodnight Rhonda Lee, will be coming out on July 21 on Single Lock Records. Pre-order Goodnight Rhonda Lee here. The album was recorded with Fort Worth, TX's Nile City Sound, a.k.a. producers Austin Jenkins, Josh Block, and Chris Vivion (Leon Bridges), with additional mixing by Ben Tanner (Alabama Shakes).

A vintage soul album inspired legendary artists like Dusty Springfield, Candi Staton, Loretta Lynn and Janis Joplin, GOODNIGHT RHONDA LEE,  first heralded last November with the release of "A Little Crazy," co-written with Chris Isaak. In addition, Atkins's stellar live performance of "A Little Crazy" was an undisputed highlight of Oscar® winner Cameron Crowe's 2016 Showtime series, Roadies.

Atkins will be showcasing new songs from GOODNIGHT RHONDA LEE all summer, including an upcoming appearance at this year's Newport Folk Festival. The complete itinerary is below. For updates and ticket availability, please visitwww.nicoleatkins.com/tour.
