Lukas Nelson's Album Promise Of The Real
If you're Willie Nelson's son, country music prowess is bound to run through your blood.
Lukas Nelson and his California-based band, Promise Of The Real, just teamed up with international pop superstar Lady Gaga on the groovy track “Find Yourself." Lady Gaga provides background vocals on the soulful, empowering track that really round out the song.
Listen for yourself and hear Lady Gaga's strong, gospel-tinged vocals blend perfectly with Lukas' soothing voice, along with other songs from the band's LP, Lukas Nelson & Promise Of The Real, on Soundcloud. The LP is due for an August 25 release through Fantasy Records.
Lady Gaga has worked with country artists before, collaborating with country singer Hillary Lindsey to help her with three tracks from her album Joanne, including her hit “Million Reasons."
Talking about the album with Rolling Stone, Lukas revealed that “Find Yourself" is about a lost love. He initially wrote a song titled “Forget About Georgia" to express his heartbreak, but out of that difficulty, found inspiration for “Find Yourself" — which is all “about taking my power back and owning the love that I deserve."
Lady Gaga is also featured on the album's tune, “Carolina," and the LP is full of guest appearances from Jess Wolfe and Holly Lessig of the indie-pop act Lucius. To make the album even more special, Lukas' father Willie Nelson, plays a guitar solo on the Glen Campbell-inspired “Just Outside of Austin," which also enlists Lukas' 86-year-old Aunt Bobbi on the piano.
Lukas adds that, “all of the amazing experiences we've had have led up to this point. We've all grown so much — the band as a unit and me as a songwriter. It's all come together in a really beautiful way, we're thrilled to finally share this new music with the world."
Lukas Nelson & Promise Of The Real are currently on tour with Sheryl Crow, and have a whole host of dates lined up, including several shows at Outlaw Music Festival with Crow, Willie Nelson & Family, Bob Dylan, The Avett Brothers, and more. Keep an eye out for festival dates, which runs from now until mid-September.
