“If you roll in it long enough, your shit won’t even smell”. Folk balladeer Nathaniel Rateliff returns today with a startling new song ‘Still Trying’, a prelude to new long-player Falling Faster Than You Can Run.

Falling Faster Than You Can Run is released November 26 via Thirty Tigers. Listen to an exclusive stream of ‘Still Trying’ below.
