Nicole Atkins has released her new song, “Sleepwalking,” today via Consequence of Sound. The song appears on her forthcoming album, Goodnight Rhonda Lee, out July 21 on Single Lock Records.  Listen and share “Sleepwalking” here and pre-order Goodnight Rhonda Lee here.

Nicole tells Consequence of Sound about the origins of “Sleepwalking”: “I kept having this reoccurring dream about a person I had a very intense relationship with. Actually I’d have this dream for years and I’d wake up in a cold sweat. I’d wake up like ‘get out of my goddamn dreams!’ It was like being haunted by the living — like modern witchcraft of some sort.  I went over to my friend Reno Bo’s house to try and exorcize some demons and we came up with this song. Remembering that pain of just floating numb through a dream of something that once gave you so much hope and desire. When I recorded it I threw on some Love Boat horns in the middle eight because being dramatically sad should also be fun.”

GOODNIGHT RHONDA LEE, her first record in three years, 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). The album, a vintage soul album inspired legendary artists like Dusty Springfield, Candi Staton, Loretta Lynn and Janis Joplin, was first heralded last November with the release of “A Little Crazy,” available now on Spotify, iTunes and Bandcamp. Co-written with Chris Isaak, the track premiered via Brooklyn Vegan, which hailed it as “a delicate, soulful ballad.” 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 visit
