New Album?All Or Nothin??Out Now
US Summer Headlining Tour Starts June 1st?
On?Nikki Lane?s acclaimed sophomore album,?All Or Nothin?, she sings about misbehaving and raising hell. And, in the video for her single ?Right Time,? the Nashville chanteuse shows us just what happens when you cross her, or her friends. Named one of CMT?s ?Next Women of Country,? the country music tastemakers just premiered the music video, which showcases the fierce singer as a weapon-wielding revenge specialist that all bad boys should fear.
Since Lane?s record was released earlier this month, her classic country meets rocker chic has struck a big chord. Currently on newsstands,?Rolling Stone?features her in a breaking artist profile titled, ?The Rise of a Country Rebel,? while Rhapsody chose her as their ?Ones to Watch? artist for the month of May ? exclaiming that Lane?s ?playful bad-girl imagery, vintage guitars and garage-rock beats keep luring us in.?
Produced by Dan Auerbach of the Black Keys in his Nashville studio, Easy Eye Sound, the 12 tracks of?All Or Nothin??(out now on?New West Records) tell tales about misbehaving, wanton desires, heartache, love and lust. “It’s always the right time to do the wrong thing,” Lane repeats like a mantra during the infectious opener “Right Time” and that statement defines?All Or Nothin’?as good as anything will.
From the whimsical, dreamy sensation of??I Don?t Care??to the stripped-down acoustic duet with?Auerbach, ?Love?s On Fire,??to the plaintive ballad??Out of My Mind,??written with former touring partner J. Spaceman of?Spiritualized?and the woozy, blue-eyed soul of the title track, the album showcases the many sides of Lane and her diverse influences.
Lane is also currently winning over radio. Earlier this month she set history for 2014 as the #1 most added at Americana radio this year with 35 first week adds. She also scored highest first week chart debut by an artist this year at #18. She is currently #3 on the Americana chart for the third week and #14 on the FMQB Non Comm chart with airplay at such notable stations as WFUV, KEXP, KUTX, WXPN, KCMP and KCSN.
Just off the road with Athens rockers The Whigs and alt-country act Old 97?s, Lane will embark on a headlining tour in June. Support will be provided by New Mexico singer/songwriter Max Gomez and the Wisconsin-based ?north country? group Hugh Bob & The Hustle.
Like the thoughts and emotions behind them, Lane?s songs shift and ebb in the live setting but she promises whether she?s playing solo or with a full band she approaches each song ?in the most badass way possible.? Full routing is below.
