Natalie Prass, singer, and songwriter from Richmond Virginia has revealed details of her upcoming sophomore album, The Future And The Past as well as the lead single “Short Court Style,” which is accompanied by a brand new music video.
“Short Court Style” is directed by Prass herself and Erica Price, with Jethro Waters (Angel Olsen) as Director of Photography, the video features a colorfully dressed Prass as she spins on a merry-go-round and dances with ribbon dancers making a cold and dreary park anything but. The song is an upbeat pop track one would hear on the radio during the 80s. It is delightful and fun with lyrics like “Oh you spin me round / Round and round / Had ups and downs / No but I can’t be without / My love that I have found.”

Prass rewrote the record following the 2016 election. Though she had everything laid out regarding the new album, songs were written, her band assembled, her studio booked but then things changed when the 2016 election occurred. In a press statement, Prass revealed, “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.”
Her new record, The Future and The Past is out on June 1st via ATO records and follows her breakthrough, self-titled debut, and her covers EP Side by Side; both released back in 2015.
