Fresh from throwing a rally at Levitt Pavilion to prevent gun violence, Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats have released their latest music video for the song "A Little Honey," which is all about sweet, sweet love: love between bandmates, love between old folks and love of pie and coffee.
"'A Little Honey’ is a song all about love and desire," says Rateliff in a statement. "Everyone needs some honey and sweet loving, and in the video we wanted to embrace that kind of love in couples of all ages. A burning love doesn’t have any kind of borders or age restrictions.”
Along with the video, the band is throwing a sweet fundraiser, putting out a craft chocolate dubbed A Little Honey. Proceeds from the candy, produced by Small Batch America and Fruition Chocolate Works, will benefit Rateliff's foundation, the Marigold Project, and Denver Urban Gardens, which runs community gardens to help neighborhoods feed themselves.
The chocolate is available at Rateliff's website.
Rateliff's next Denver concert will be November 10, when he opens for folk legend John Prine.
