“’Qadir’ is equal parts heart wrenching and raucous… the words cut much deeper than I was ready for.”
– NPR “HEAT CHECK”
“There’s never been a better time for this reminder of the importance of care.”

Nick Hakim releases his sophomore album WILL THIS MAKE ME GOOD via ATO Records. The new album features a slew of Hakim's previously released singles including Pitchfork Best New Track selection "QADIR" and the Mac DeMarco assisted "CRUMPY."
While WILL THIS MAKE ME GOOD is distinctly Nick Hakim, it does represent a tonal shift from 2017's Green Twins that reflects the ideas with which he grappled while making the record. To prepare listeners for the experience, Hakim shares the following statement about the record:
"I feel the people simmering, on our way to the boiling point. There's a lot of madness going on around us and this world can feel so cold. It can get hard to remember what makes it worth it. The people around me and the music I love helps.
This is my world; a lot of friends touched this record, and that makes me feel lucky and proud. These songs are glimpses into my community. I'm exploring, but I'm not alone. It's a journey in progress; it's an experiment, every day."
