Natalie Prass Announces New Album, Releases “Short Court Style”

Folk singer-songwriter Natalie Prass first introduced the world to her warm, soulful voice and lush, bluesy instrumentation on her 2015 self-titled debut. Later that year, she released Side By Side, a collection of live recordings and cover songs, including her take on Grimes, Simon & Garfunkel, and Anita Baker. Her cover of Baker’s R&B classic “Caught Up In The Rapture” is perhaps the strongest link between the romantic melancholy of her debut and the funky rhythms she explores on her first release since 2015, “Short Court Style.” Prass shared the new song today along with its music video. Co-directed by Prass and Erica Prince, the clip features Prass decked out in a green bodysuit, dancing among playground equipment and ribbon twirlers. Watch the video below.

Along with the new single, Prass has announced a forthcoming sophomore LP, The Future And The Past, that is due out this June. Prass, a Virginia native, was previously signed to indie label and recording studio Spacebomb, based in Richmond, but for her new album, she has partnered with ATO Records. Prass is also heading on tour, including several dates opening for Fleet Foxes. View the album’s tracklist and cover art, as well as her upcoming tour dates, below.
