Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats unveil epic new track, Get Used to the Night today. The song is the third single off their fourth studio album South of Here. With “Get Used to the Night”, Rateliff shares a moving tribute to his late friend and collaborator Richard Swift. “You run ahead and I’ll catch up to you / Still so much left for me to do,” he sings with tender resignation. A masterful vocal performance from Rateliff is coupled with a rich, stirring brass arrangement from The Night Sweats.

The band will perform the album’s lead single “Heartless” on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on June 13. “Heartless” continues to climb the charts; the song is #1 at Americana Radio for the third week and is trending Top 5 on Triple A Charts. Relix writes, ‘”Heartless” pours over with heart, testifying to Rateliff’s mastery of reflecting the knotty wholeness of life through personal narrative and sonic storytelling,” while Consequence notes, “Though there are tales of anguish and doubt in “Heartless,” the harmonies around Rateliff from the Night Sweats offer support and a light in the dark.”
