Nick Waterhouse Releases Ty Segall Cover from Holly (Out 2/4)

“It No. 3,” the latest track off Nick Waterhouse’s forthcoming album Holly (due March 4 on Innovative Leisure) and Ty Segall cover, is available below.

“It No. 3,” the latest track off Nick Waterhouse’s forthcoming album Holly (due March 4 on Innovative Leisure) and Ty Segall cover, is now streaming at Vogue The new record, which follows Waterhouse’s 2012 debut Time’s All Gone, has received early critical acclaim—Rolling Stone explains “Nick Waterhouse is a soul man, through and through,” while Paste Magazine praises the music as a “…cohesive selection of work that, presented together, tells a story.”

Furthermore, the video for “This is a Game” is premiering at Esquire:, and Waterhouse is featured in a Lexus ad, which debuted during the GRAMMYs telecast: To celebrate the release, Waterhouse is on a nationwide tour. See below for details.

Holly was produced by Waterhouse and Kevin Augunas (Cold War Kids, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros) and includes various song writing collaborations as well as covers of tracks by Young Holt Trio and Mose Allison among others. Of the new music, Waterhouse notes, “Thematically this record feels more like a novella, or poem with sections, or even a film, than a collection of songs. It is a work of fiction, with a protagonist, but also a floating omniscient narrator, and fragments of conversation from other characters. I was heavily influenced by my surroundings in young Los Angeles, as well as the concept of fate.” See reverse for full track listing.

Waterhouse grew up in Huntington Beach, CA. He established his musical sensibilities in the middle of the burgeoning Southern California psych-garage scene while retaining his unique perspective on the spirit of American rhythm & blues and rock & roll. Waterhouse started performing as a teenager noting, “I found it had the same feeling I got racing motorcycles as a kid, which is a fight-or-flight feeling of things happening in ‘real time’…I felt like that was the most focusing thing about playing music versus other forms of art. You have to live with what you do in an immediate moment.”
