Nick Waterhouse announces new self-titled album set for March 8th release on Innovative Leisure

Los Angeles-based musician Nick Waterhouse has announced his new self-titled album set for March 8th release via Innovative Leisure. Following 2016’s ‘Never Twice’ which was hailed by Vogue as “the second coming of soul” and earned Nick a performance on ‘Later’ with Jools Holland, the new album was recorded at LA’s legendary Electro-Vox Recorders, and co-produced with Paul Butler (Michael Kiwanuka, St. Paul and the Broken Bones), with backing from a heavy bevy of friends and session players including Bart Davenport, percussionist Andres Renteria (Flying Lotus, Father John Misty), flutist Ricky Washington (Kamasi’s dad), and saxophonists Paula Henderson (Gogol Bordello) and Mando Dorame (JD McPherson).

The scorched earth first single ‘Song For Winners’ is out today via Consequence of Sound. Drawing inspiration from British poet Percy Bysshe Shelley and Nina Simone, the knockout track combines a feral R&B howl with elegant touches of club jazz with 60’s soul.

Nick will head out on a run of European and UK headlining live dates in support of his upcoming album. See below for a full list of dates.
