Nathaniel Rateliff has shared a cathartic new single called “Redemption,” which is set to feature on the soundtrack for the forthcoming Justin Timberlake-starring film Palmer.
Fisher Stevens’ forthcoming flick is set to follow a former high school football star Eddie Palmer (Timberlake), who becomes a convicted felon. The movie sees Palmer returning to his hometown in Louisiana to rebuild his life after doing time.
“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,” Rateliff says. “The melody and the opening line came to me immediately. 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.”
Listen to “Redemption” and check out the trailer for the film below.
Palmer is set for release on January 29th, 2021.
