Nick Waterhouse x Play To Win
Nick Waterhouse releases new heartbreak soul single "Play To Win" off his forthcoming album The Fooler out April 1 on Innovative Leisure / PRES. The Fooler is an immaculate record that offers up new riches and fresh perspectives with every spin. The record is partly a farewell to and reclamation of a version of Waterhouse’s past existence framed by a city that is part dream, part reality and part potential - a tale of city haunted by song - a place filled with 45s produced by people like Bert Berns or released on Scepter, Wand, Atlantic and Verve and heard on the jukeboxes in iconic San Francisco institutions like Tosca, Specs and Trieste in North Beach.
The acclaimed singer-songwriter releases new album single and visualizer for "Play To Win,” which Waterhouse says is "a heartbreak type of tune with co-writer Doc playing the piano and producer Mark Neill both taking me to a place I have never been in my career before. This is about what it’s like in the din and chatter of city apartment parties, bars, sitting rooms, and loneliness from the seat one’s sitting in looking at the insouciant world around." Last month the artist shared album singles/videos for “Hide And Seek" and "The Fooler." "Hide And Seek" puts you in the city of dreams that The Fooler unfolds in - and the sound is the place. And title track "The Fooler" is about how your own heart and your memories can betray you in really nice ways. Waterhouse also created another way fans can tune in to the music. As depicted in the "Hide and Seek" music video, people can dial into his The Fooler radio show on KFLR and request the three new songs. Lines are open at (833)777-KFLR.
