“New York City has always inspired me”, states Willie Nile. “I’ve lived in Greenwich Village for many years now, and I love being there. The energy, the grit, and the mystery of it all fills my heart with wonder. Most of these songs were written in New York or were inspired by it in one way or another”.
Nile is referring to "New York At Night", his 13th studio album and the strongest manifestation to date of his deep affinity for his adopted hometown, due out May 15th, 2020. The album’s 12 personally charged new originals exemplify the artist’s trademark mix of romance, idealism, humor, emotional urgency and a true believer’s passionate embrace of all things rock’n’roll. Nile’s abiding passion for his town animates such tunes as “New York Is Rockin'” and the album’s title track.
