Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats Get Nostalgic with 'A Little Honey' On 'Kimmel': Watch
Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats took the stage at Jimmy Kimmel Live! Stage on Thursday night (Sept. 6) to ramble through the ballad “A Little Honey” from the band's new album, Tearing at the Seams. Serving up their patented fusion of country, rock and soul, the Denver-based singer-songwriter with the charismatic voice and equally gifted band evoked a sense of nostalgia with lyrics such as, "I'm so lonely, feeling heavy love / You're just so far from where I want you now."
Thoroughly personal, “A Little Honey” -- and most of the Tearing at the Seams' singles -- illustrates Ratliff’s thoughts on loneliness and complicated love affairs with the catchy chorus “Come on now, baby/ You speak so soft and low/ Come on now, baby/ You think that I don't know/ I need some honey.”
Despite the melancholic lyrics, Ratellif’s powerful voice turned the track into a soaring, soothing, love story anthem as his guitar beautifully echoed his conflicted emotions.
