Willie Nelson Shares ‘I’ll Be Seeing You’ Single
Willie Nelson released a new version of “I’ll Be Seeing You” as a single today. Willie’s rendition features in an Ad Council and COVID Collaborative PSA encouraging folks to get their COVID-19 vaccines in hopes that sports venues across the country can return to full capacity soon.
Nelson’s latest version of “I’ll Be Seeing You” features his iconic voice as well as ukulele accompaniment by Ari Hest. Nelson included a version of the song on his 1994 album, Healing Hands of Time. Sammy Fain and Irving Kahal penned “I’ll Be Seeing You” in the 1930s and it debuted in the 1938 Broadway musical, Right This Way. The tune was later covered by Bing Crosby and Frank Sinatra, the latter of which Willie has honored with a pair of tribute albums, with That’s Life arriving earlier this year.
About “I’ll Be Seeing You” and the vaccine PSA, Willie said in a statement, “I’m happy to be part of this new campaign with the Ad Council, COVID Collaborative and these sports organizations to empower millions more to get the answers they need and feel confident in getting vaccinated, like I did.”
