Nicole Atkins released the first song from her excellent new record via Paste on Tuesday. “Girl You Look Amazing” is one of 12 fantastic songs that make up the neon noir tour de force of hi-def late-night pop she is calling Slow Phaser, out February 4 on her own Oh’Mercy! Records. The album marks Atkins’ most ingenious and indelibly modern collection to date. Bittersweet yet life affirming, Slow Phaser is Nicole Atkins at her confident and unpredictable best – spirited, sexy, and determinedly forward thinking. Atkins will begin touring on this record in February.

“I wanted to make something that no one’s ever heard before,” she says, “including myself.”
