Singer-songwriter-guitarist-performer Eli "Paperboy" Reed's new album Nights Like This is out now on iTunes. Produced by Reed with his guitarist and longtime collaborator, Ryan Speaker, it represents a sonic evolution beyond the singer's soulful roots, taking his affinity for classic R&B and blending it with the ebullience of modern pop music. As tracks like the single "Nights Like This" attest, Reed's signature witty vocal rasp, love of a sturdy groove, and undeniable tunefulness remain. He's simply expanded his musical palette. The album also features "WooHoo" and "Shock to the System," which was co-written with Michael Fitzpatrick of Fitz and the Tantrums.
