Compass Records is excited to announce that The Boot is currently streaming in its entirety the new album, TO RISE YOU GOTTA FALL, by renowned singer/songwriter Nicki Bluhm. TO RISE YOU GOTTA FALL was recorded in Memphis at the legendary Sam Phillips Recording studio and features two co-writes with Ryan Adams and a Dan Penn cover. For these live band analog sessions, Bluhm brought in producer Matt Ross-Spang (Margo Price, Jason Isbell), and the studio band included Will Sexton (guitar), Ross-Spang (guitars), Ken Coomer (drums and percussion), Al Gamble (Hammond B3), Rick Steff (piano) and Dave Smith (bass), with Reba Russell and Susan Marshall (background singers), Sam Shoup (string arrangements) and various special guests.
 
LISTEN TO THE ALBUM  
 
Last week, American Songwriter premiered Bluhm's new single and Scot Sax directed video, "Battlechain Rose," a co-write with Ryan Adams. In late March, Rolling Stone premiered the album's title track, hailing the song as "a blast of Memphis soul."
 
WATCH "BATTLECHAIN ROSE" HERE
 
After six years with her band the Gramblers, and recent high-profile collaborations (Phil Lesh, Infamous StringDusters, Ryan Adams), Bluhm wrote the life-chronicling songs for TO RISE YOU GOTTA FALL over a two-year period, during which she got divorced and moved to Nashville, TN. The album is a chronicle of her state of mind following these deep and fundamental life changes. Bluhm will be touring this year and beyond in support of TO RISE YOU GOTTA FALL. The confirmed tour dates are below. More will be announced soon.
