Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real Announce 'A Few Stars Apart' LP
Hear the record's newly shared "Leave 'Em Behind"
Published May 14, 2021When they're not the backing band for Neil Young or Jackson Maine, Willie Nelson's son Lukas Nelson and his band Promise of the Real maintain a pretty solid career of their own. And they're set to return with another new LP.
The new album is called A Few Stars Apart and will arrive on June 11 via Fantasy/Universal Music Canada.
The band have previewed the album with a stream of the new single "Leave 'em Behind," which Nelson explains comes from a particularly heavy place.
"Leave 'Em Behind is one of my favourite tracks on the album," he said in a statement. "I wrote it about a friend who was in an abusive relationship…and as we saw the domestic abuse numbers climb during the pandemic, I was moved to write this song."
