FOR THE RECORD: Willie Nelson

Closing in on his 84th birthday, country singer-songwriter Willie Nelson is on the road again — performing, writing music, and releasing a new album. “God’s Problem Child” is his 110th, give or take, with songs like “Still Not Dead.”

“There’s a theme here,” said Bob Schieffer. “This is about the autumn of your life. Is that hard for you to think about?”

“No,” Nelson replied. “You remember one of those deep thinkers, a guy named Seneca? He said you should look at death and comedy with the same countenance. And I believe that.”

“Old Timer”, new video from Willie Nelson’s new album, “God’s Problem Child” (Out APRIL 28th)

God’s Problem Child
Sony Records
“Old Timer”

“You’ve been down every highway
Burned your share of bridges
You found forgiveness
You think that you’re still a young bull rider
Till you look in the mirror and see an old timer”

The wait is almost over for Willie Nelson’s new album, “God’s Problem Child”, set to be released by Sony Records next month, on April 28th. We keep getting teased with these amazing new videos of songs from the new album, like this beautiful video for the song, “Old Timer.”

“God’s Problem Child,” due April 28, is Nelson’s ninth studio album since he signed a new record deal with Sony Legacy in 2012, an average of two per year.Willie’s 7th Legacy collection, Summertime: Willie Nelson Sings Gershwin , won a Grammy Award in the Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album category this year. The album debuted at #1 on both the Top Current Jazz chart and the Top Traditional Jazz chart following its release in February 2016. This is Willie’s 12th Grammy over the course of his career.

Once again, Willie collaborated with friends on his new album, and the result is all the magic and majestry that his collaborations continue to give us. He and Nashville friend, producer, songwriter Buddy Cannon wrote eight new songs on this latest collection, including, “Old Timer”. Jamey Johnson and Tony Joe White and Willie wrote the title song, “God’s Problem Child” together. The last song on the album, “He won’t Ever Be Gone” was written by Willie and Gary Nicholson, a tribute to their friend Merle Haggard.

“We weren’t planning on making a concept record or anything,” Cannon told music journalist Mikal Gilmore in an essay about the album. “He’s a born troubadour. That early genius that was him and his songs is still there.”

If you can’t wait for your favorite local independent record store to sell it on April 28th, you can pre-order it here:
