New Jersey's Nicole Atkins reveals album title track Goodnight Rhonda Lee

New Jersey songstress Nicole Atkins has revealed the title track to her new album Goodnight Rhonda Lee due for release on July 21 courtesy of Single Lock.

Produced by Niles City Sound the album is an instant classic brimming with timeless songs that were written during a time of deep self-examination for the now Nashville resident.

The new album embraces Nicole's move from her hometown Asbury Park to one of the music capital's of the world while dealing with her father's cancer diagnosis and her battle to get sober.

Nicole said: "This record came to me at a time of deep transition.

"Some days were good, some not so good.

"What I did gain, though, from starting to make some changes and going inward, and putting it out on the table, was a joy in what I do again.

"Joy in the process and a newfound confidence that I don't think I've ever had until now.

"The album title 'Goodnight Rhonda Lee' also came from those feelings.

"Rhonda Lee was kind of my alias for bad behavior, and it was time to put that persona to bed."

The album was recorded in five days and is nothing less than great art and a quantum leap forward for Nicole.

Embracing the hipster elite while channeling the greats such as Roy Orbison and Lee Hazlewood her country sound has been cranked up to a modern mix with Goodnight Rhonda Lee.

Classically aged the title track is a cute, whimsical ode to country hero Tammy Wynette.

Her simple prowess feeds the body and tale in a simple batch of lyrics - perfect for the new age.
