Goodnight Rhonda Lee is the fourth studio album by American singer-songwriter Nicole Atkins, released in July 2017 via Single Lock Records.

Nicole Atkins has released four studio albums and her sound is known for its mix of traditional vocal styles and introspective lyrics. She has been compared to Roy Orbison and singers from the Brill Building era.

Nicole Atkins relocated from her hometown of Asbury Park, New Jersey, to Nashville Tennessee to make her latest studio album Goodnight Rhonda Lee.  Here are some extracts from Nicole Atkins website about the making of her latest album:

“…She reconnected with her old friend Chris Isaak who encouraged her, in the midst of all the soul-searching and soul-baring, to write songs that emphasized the one trait that most sets her apart from the mere mortals of the industry, telling her, “Atkins, you have a very special thing in your voice that a lot of people can’t or don’t do. You need to stop shying away from that thing and let people hear it.”

To that end, the two of them collaborated on Goodnight Rhonda Lee's standout track, "A Little Crazy.”

In Nashville, Nicole's once hectic life was very different. Left home alone as her tour manager husband plied his trade out on the road, Nicole found herself writing songs that examined "feelings of separation and being scared of new surroundings." In particular, the songs "Sleepwalking" and "Darkness Falls" echo like ghosts through an empty house.

In order to capture the timelessness in sound she sought, Nicole enlisted a modern day Wrecking Crew: Niles City Sound in Fort Worth, TX, who had just risen to national acclaim as Leon Bridges' secret weapon. "We spoke the same language. We wanted to make something classic, something that had an atmosphere and a mood of romance and triumph and strength and soul."

The album was recorded in five days, live to tape. The album that Nicole and the boys came up with in those five days, Goodnight Rhonda Lee, is nothing less than Great Art and a quantum leap forward for Nicole Atkins who, no matter how much she grows up, will always be a little crazy..”

The first single released from the album was “Goodnight Rhonda Lee” which is about her past behaviour, and how she is finally putting it to rest. The second single was “Listen Up”, in which Atkins is very self-critical on how her life lessons were learned the hard way, delivered as a soulful pop recording.

The album was released to critical acclaim, with many reviewers noting that her focus to write about her life and leaving it all on tape, makes for her strongest impression since her debut.

Check out the tracks:  Goodnight Rhonda Lee”; “Listen Up”; “A Little Crazy”; and “Darkness Falls So Quiet”.

This LP record is on black vinyl housed in a gatefold sleeve with digital download code, pressed in the US.
