Willie Nile World War Willie on LP

Willie Nile's tenth studio album World War Willie embodies the distinctive mix of urgency, introspection, idealism and self effacing humor that's long endeared him to his admirers. The dozen-song set lives up to Nile's reputation as a world-class songwriter, a singularly energetic performer and a true rock 'n' roll believer.

American Ride (2013) was one of Nile's most acclaimed releases to date, topping numerous critics' year-end best-of lists and being voted Best Rock Album of the Year by the Independent Music Awards. World War Willie lives up to that standard with some of the most resonant songwriting and performances of Nile's career. Recorded with longtime producer Stewart Lerman (Antony and the Johnsons, Loudon Wainwright III) WWW features Nile's longstanding band, and additional sterling guitar from Steuart Smith (Eagles, Rosanne Cash) on three tracks.

"There's a live feel to the tracks because we captured an actual performance on every one," Nile says. "The band and I have done so many shows together that our instincts all seem to arrive at the same intersection at the same time. We all play and feel as one, and there's an energy there that you can't manufacture."

Currently in the fourth decade of a recording career that's yielded a panoply of musical riches, the New York-bred artist is currently experiencing an exciting renaissance.

"One of the most brilliant singer-songwriters of the past thirty years." – The New Yorker

"Willie's so good I can't believe he's not from New Jersey!" – Little Steven
