Nat Myers has unveiled the closing track from his debut album Yellow Peril today (out June 23 via Easy Eye Sound), sharing his hope for a brighter future ahead with new song "Pray For Rain." While musically channeling "the great Delta bluesmen" (WNYC), Myers' "Pray For Rain" doubles as a breezy ode to tranquility, stability and peace - dreaming of a world where tending to his garden might be among life's major concerns. On Yellow Peril, the blues poet is using his voice to try to get us a bit closer to that place - fearlessly confronting the injustice, otherness and dark wave of Asian hate that accompanied the global pandemic. Like much of the new album, "Pray For Rain" was co-written with Dan Auerbach and Pat McLaughlin - a hero of Myers for his work with John Prine - and recorded by all three musicians inside of Auerbach's own Nashville home.

Speaking of Prine and McLaughlin, Myers also teamed with The Recording Academy this week to pay tribute to the duo as part of the GRAMMYs' ReImagined live covers series.

"Pray For Rain" offers the latest look at Myers' debut album Yellow Peril, a collection which finds him carrying on the traditions of the blues while simultaneously shattering every stereotype that comes with them. A Korean-American poet raised on hardcore and hip-hop, Myers came to the hundred-year-old sounds of artists like Blind Lemon Jefferson and Charley Patton while discovering "that the real epics were being told by these itinerant musicians from the ’30s and ’40s, even before recorded sound." With the ultimate goal to "raise my folks up" as Myers puts it, Yellow Peril finds the Kentucky musician pulling from a wide range of historical threads while remaining thoroughly modern - using fleet riffs, complex rhythms, and quick tempos to tell tales full of intelligence, soul, contradiction and nuance.
