Lukas Nelson & Promise Of The Real Announce New Album & Share Single


Lukas Nelson & Promise of The Real’s new album, Turn Off The News (Build A Garden), will be released on June 14. The LP coming out on Fantasy Records features the lead single, “Bad Case.”

Co-produced by the band and John Alagia, Turn Off The News (Build A Garden) was recorded straight to analog tape at Shangri-La studio in Malibu and at the Village Studios in West Los Angeles. Guests who contributed to the record include Willie Nelson, Neil Young, Sheryl Crow, Margo Price, Micah Nelson, Kesha, Shooter Jennings, Randy Houser, Lucius, Madison Ryann Ward and Hunter Elizabeth.

“We wanted these songs to be fun and upbeat, but we also wanted to have something to say,” Lukas Nelson stated. “Rock ‘n’ roll began as a countercultural movement, so in the true spirit of rock ‘n’ roll, we’re trying to encourage a lifestyle where people can be active in their local communities, rather than glued to a device. We listen to so many artists – The Byrds, Tom Petty, Al Green, Neil Young, Little Feat, JJ Cale – and this album carries forth something they all represented, the idea of turning off the news and doing something constructive. It’s a statement about how you can live your life with your heart leading the way.”
