Nick is the second studio album by American recording artist Nick Riverra, released on February 18, 2014, through Low Price. The lead single, "My Disease", was released to positive reviews on December 3, 2013. "Damn" was released as the second single on February 6, 2014.

BackgroundEdit

In November 2013, it was announced Riverra had been signed to Young Prince's record label Low Price, as he said he was ready to begin again. He had spent half of 2013 composing and recording new songs for a new album, his second since the 2003 release Insomnia. In 2012, he had worked with Prince on some songs for Prince's debut album Young Prince, Low Price, but none made the cut. However, Riverra said he was fine with it.

PromotionEdit

On February 19, 2014, Riverra attended the 34th BRIT Awards, in which he performed "My Disease" and an acoustic rendition of "Probably". On February 20, 2014, he performed "Damn" at The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. On March 8, 2014, Riverra performed "Damn" and "Superlove" in the fifteenth episode of Saturday Night Live's season 39. To further promote the album, he supported Prince, Jane Mik and Felicia on the European leg of the Brooks Family Tour.

SinglesEdit

The first single from the album, "My Disease", was released on December 3, 2013, to positive reviews and comercial success. Riverra stated that the hard rock track had been chosen as the lead single because it would be "a powerful comeback, but most of the album songs were different." The single went on to peak at number 4 in the US and atop the Australian Singles Chart, where it received a Gold certification. More information was revealed about the album alongside the single release. Riverra was planning to explore new genres, including traditional R&B and pop ballads.

On February 6, 2014, it was announced Nick would be released on February 18, 2014, to the surprise of most fans. "Damn" was released as the second single the same day. After an hour of the announcement, the album was made available for pre-order on iTunes, the track list being revealed. The following day, the cover was revealed.

"Goodnight & Goodbye" was chosen as the third single and sent to contemporary hit radio on April 23, 2014. It became the most successful single in Springfield, being the only one that entered the Springfield Hot 20 Singles chart, peaking at number 5.
