Singer-songwriter Nicole Atkins, an artist who continues to impress ever since her fantastic 2007 debut Neptune City, has already announced the forthcoming release of her latest work, a full-length entitled Slow Phaser. Now, Atkins has release the album art for Slow Phaser along with a new song, “Girl You Look Amazing.”
“This song actually came to me in a dream,” said Atkins. “It was being played in a big dance club and David Byrne was singing it. I woke up and recorded it into my phone. It took a while to figure out what “girl, you look amazing” could mean, as I’ve never been one to be that positive. So I wrote it about a girl who is the last one to shut the party down. Whose life is just an absolute mess. She might look amazing, but she misses all the real things that used to make her happy.”
Listen to “Girl You Look Amazing” in the player below. Slow Phaser is set for release on Feb. 4, 2014, and you can check out the front and back covers for the album in the gallery on this page.
