Lukas Nelson & Promise of The Real will release a new studio album entitled A Few Stars Apart through Fantasy Records on June 11. The group previewed the Dave Cobb-produced LP by issuing its lead single, “Perennial Bloom (Back To You)” and a lyric video for the track.

The follow-up to 2019’s Turn Off The News (Build A Garden) was recorded with Cobb live on eight-track tape at the historic RCA Studio A in Nashville. A Few Stars Apart consists of 11 tracks Lukas wrote while locked down with his family in Texas at the start of the pandemic.

“I’m from what one might say is the ultimate road family—I’ve been on the road my entire life,” explained Nelson. “I’ve never been anywhere longer than three months, and suddenly here we are, the four of us together. And thank god we were together. I can’t remember the last time we had that much time together as a family. We had a lot of really important bonding that happened during that time. And I have to say, as terrible as the pandemic has been in so many ways, for my inner peace, I was able to take a lot of good from this time. I was able to pause and reflect.”

Lukas went on to add, “It took me a really long time to come back to the home in my heart. In a physical sense, that’s Texas and Hawaii. But in a spiritual sense as well—I think I finally decided not to run from who I am and who I am destined to be. First and foremost, that’s a songwriter. That’s what this record means to me. There’s a story being told through the whole record. A story about connection and coming home.”
