Milwaukee, WI-based Buffalo Nichols today released his new original single “Love Is All” previewing his anticipated album The Fatalist due out September 15th via Fat Possum. Anchored by a mesmerizing blues arpeggio that floats over a minimal, driving rhythm, the evocative modern protest song proudly declares ‘Love Is All.’ “In our society the bar is set very low for what is deemed acceptable behavior for men,” says Nichols. “It is socially acceptable to be cruel and place financial gain over human kindness so I believe loving and treating someone with respect, fairness and kindness is one of the most powerful things one can do. Choosing spiritual love over material love. There is also a theme of the unfamiliarity of pure and real love as many of us grow up having never experienced or witnessed it.”

It’s a song with no way out. You started down this road so long ago you’ve forgotten how you got there. The thrill had you hooked. You turned the radio up, rolled the windows down, and felt the wind rush through your hair. Life is good when the wheels are in motion. You chased that endless horizon day and night but it was always just out of reach. Before you knew it, you’d lost track of time, missed a turn, and gone too far in the wrong direction. Now, you’re looking for an off ramp, some way back to where you were before. But that’s not how this highway works and neither does time. There’s no turning this rig around. So, what are you going to do? Count your tear drops ’til kingdom come? That’s its own kind of dead end. No, the only way forward is through. Take a breath, grip the wheel and pray.”
