Nathaniel Rateliff Performs “Redemption” & “A Little Honey” on Saturday Night Live
- Denver-based singer-songwriter Nathaniel Rateliff appeared on Saturday Night Live to perform “Redemption” and “A Little Honey” with his band The Night Sweats on February 13, 2021. This marks his musical guest debut on the sketch show.
“Redemption” was released last December from the Apple original film “Palmer, starring Justin Timberlake.
“When I was first asked to write a song for Palmer I was told what the film was about and where the song was going to be used. The melody and the opening line came to me immediately,” Nathaniel Rateliff said of the song in a statement. “But it wasn't until I had a conversation with Justin [Timberlake] that helped me to put the song together. He said the film was about redemption. I saw that in the characters and did my best to add to the scene in the film.”
“A Little Honey” was released by Rateliff & The Night Sweats in 2018 from their second studio album “Tearing at the Seams”.
At that time, he told Rolling Stone about the song, “'A Little Honey' is a song all about love and desire. Everyone needs some honey and sweet loving.”
