The incredible singer songwriter Nicole Atkins was on Late Night with David Letterman last week and, as usual, knocked it out of the park. Nicole sang ‘War Torn‘ from her new album Slow Phaser Deluxe Edition Live at the Masonic Temple.


Atkins’ Slow Phaser was recorded in Sweden, and released early last year. Nicole has released a couple of singles from it already, most notably ‘Girl You Look Amazing‘. Now she has a deluxe version out with additional songs.

As for ‘War Torn‘, it’s an amazing song. It’s a song that starts out slow and kind of 60s dreamy, and then changes into heavy, screeching guitar and harder vocals, until it ends slow and kind of 60s dreamy again. Just beautiful.

Slow Phaser Live at the Masonic Temple Detroit Deluxe Version is available on most major digital music sites. Buy it. It’s amazing.

Meanwhile, watch Nicole Atkins sing ‘War Torn‘ live on Letterman. What a truly gorgeous performance.
