Singer-songwriter Nicole Atkins has given the world a taste of her forthcoming album Mondo Amore
by releasing her tune "Vultures" as a free download. It's pretty tasty. "Vultures" is an epic number with big, wall-of-sound choruses, dark, brooding verses, and some very classic rock-sounding melodic guitar.
is tenatively scheduled for release in January 2011 on Razor & Tie Records. It will be her second full-length solo release, although she has also released a number of EPs and demos and has been featured on several compilations. Atkins is currently coming off a run of opening gigs for The Black Keys
