“Buy My Round,” the newly written and recorded track from Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, is out now via Stax. The song appears on the band’s forthcoming EP, What If I, out on June 2. The EP is their first body of work since the acclaimed 2021 album The Future. Listen to/share it HERE.
“‘Buy My Round’ is a song about trying to keep a friendship together with someone that keeps pulling away,” says Night Sweats band member Mark Shusterman. “It’s something that had been bouncing around in my head for a while, so I was excited when Nathaniel wanted to help me finish it for this recording. It was great to get to sing together on this one.” Rateliff furthers, “Mark had been playing this one while we were writing for The Future but we never got a chance to dig into it. This is our first big collaboration on a song together and it turned out great.”
Rateliff performed at Willie Nelson’s star-studded 90th Birthday Celebration at Los Angeles’ Hollywood Bowl. As part of the lauded two-day concert event, Rateliff contributed renditions of “A Song for You,” “City of New Orleans” and “I Can Get Off on You,” which was performed as a duet with Margo Price.
In addition, Rateliff and the band will hit the road this summer and fall for an extensive run of worldwide dates. The U.S. tour includes multiple shows at Denver’s Red Rocks Amphitheatre, Chicago’s The Salt Shed and Minneapolis’ Surly Brewing Festival Field as well as appearances at Brandi Carlile’s Mothership Weekend, Outlaw Music Festival with Willie Nelson & Family, Pilgrimage Music & Cultural Festival, Sea Hear Now Festival and more.
