Natalie Prass released a new album, The Future and the Past, back in June 2018 via ATO (it was our Album of the Week and one of our Top 100 Albums of 2018). More than half a year later she is still out promoting the album and last night she stopped by The Late Late Show with James Corden to perform the album’s first single, “Short Court Style.” It was a tight and fun performance, one that showcased how Prass’ live show has developed and gotten even better since she performed the song on Conan last March. Watch it below, followed by Prass’ upcoming tour dates.

Read our 2018 interview with Natalie Prass on The Future and the Past.

Previously Prass shared a video for The Future and the Past‘s first single, “Short Court Style” (which was one of our Songs of the Week), and also performed the song on Conan. Then she shared the album’s second single, “Sisters,” which a press release called a “feminist anthem.” “Sisters” was our #1 Song of the Week. Then she shared “Lost,” which was also one of our Songs of the Week, as well as a video where she performed “Lost” with a paired down orchestra or large string section at Montrose Recording, a studio in Richmond. Then she shared a video for “The Fire” and covered Dionne Warwick’s “Deja Vu.”

The Richmond-based singer/songwriter released her acclaimed self-titled debut album in 2015 via Spacebomb/StarTime International. She had a new album written and was ready to record it when Donald Trump won the 2016 Presidential election, which led to Prass rewriting the album.

Prass had this to say about the album in the previous press release: “The record was ready to go, and then the election happened. I was devastated. It made me question what it means to be a woman in America, whether any of the things I thought were getting better were actually improving, who I am and what I believe in. I knew I would be so upset with myself if I didn’t take the opportunity to say some of the things that meant so much to me, so I decided to rewrite the record. I needed to make an album that was going to get me out of my funk, one that would hopefully lift other people out of theirs, too, because that’s what music is all about.”

As with her debut album, The Future and the Past was recorded in Richmond, VA with long-time friend and collaborator Matthew E. White at his Spacebomb Studios.
