The R&B/soul project from the Denver singer-songwriter, has shared “I Need Never Get Old,” the first taste of its upcoming self-titled album.

Due out on the classic soul  Stax Records, the album is scheduled for release late this summer. It includes production from the Shins’ Richard Swift, who has also worked on the latest release from fellow Denver based  band Tennis.

If you’ve frequented the Night Sweats live shows in the Denver area lately, you’ve likely heard “I Need Never Get Old.” This recording, which the band shared today, captures the Night Sweats’ live dynamics. Horns, guitar, percussion, Rateliff’s vocals — they all find a nice mix on the track, which has that lively, vintage dance party atmosphere.

Stax has a storied history in Memphis soul and blues music with greats like Otis Redding and its house band Booker T. & the M.G.’s. Powered by Nathaniel Rateliff’s well-loved solo material, the Night Sweats have been a force locally and nationally for the last few years, having recently returned from playing Treefort in Boise.

“I never did this stuff before, because it never really came to me,” Rateliff told us of his transition from folk to a soulman. “It just so happened that it came together for me. You have to be open to whatever comes to you.”
