Watch Nicole Atkins Perform “Promised Land” Ahead of New Album/Performance Film ‘Memphis Ice’
Nicole Atkins will reimagine her 2020 release Italian Ice with a new companion piece, Memphis Ice, out Dec. 10.
Memphis Ice will encapsulate both an in-the-moment live recording (taped in 24 hours at Memphis Magnetic Studio) as well as a “full-length performance film.”
A clip for single “Promised Land” also gives fans a glimpse of the film.
As Atkin explains, “‘Promised Land’ is a song about losing your sense of self and finally having the courage to go find it again. Even if it meant losing people and places you loved. I wrote this song a long time ago. I was living in someone else’s dream and becoming a shadow. I’ve recorded this song a few times and it always felt too encumbered with a full production. When we went in to record Memphis Ice, I realized it was the perfect place and time to record ‘Promised Land.’ Raw and performative. Nothing to hide behind.”
