Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real, “Turn Off the News”

Thursday, August 15th, 2019
by: Abby Johnston

Lukas Nelson’s first release since A Star Is Born vaulted him into the national consciousness delivers for both the newly initiated and the faithful. Fifty-minute follow-up to his self-titled 2017 breakout, Turn Off the News (Build a Garden) genre hops with ease, but the first quarter hews close to his roots-rock background.

The bright guitar progressions of “Bad Case” jangle pure Tom Petty, and the soaring balladry of “Where Does Love Go” sounds like Willie Nelson’s second youngest is auditioning to be a Wilbury. “Lotta Fun” marks the start of a brief country turn, sealed by a sweet duet with Nelson family favorite Margo Price.

“Mystery,” one of the album’s few acoustic cuts, features dear ol’ dad picking Trigger. The scion sounds most at ease on the album’s back half, which burns with guitar solos. After a full-band maelstrom closes “Out in LA,” Nelson concludes, “That was some magic. There’s some magic there.”

“My dad is fine”

“A lot of folks been asking -I spoke to Dad and he’s fine, just going for a check up. At 86 you gotta make sure everything is running smoothly so you can keep doing 100 + shows a year! He HATES to miss shows because he loves the folks who love him ! ” — Lukas Nelson

Lukas Nelson, “Consider It Heaven”

Thursday, July 11th, 2019

“I wrote this song a long time ago .. took a while to come to fruition in the recording studio, but once we sat down to do it, it played itself .. on the record, I’m especially impressed with the restraint of the band, how well everyone complements each other.. special shout out to our old friend Jesse Grey Siebenberg for the beautiful steel guitar on the album version of “Consider It Heaven”.. this is how I wrote it originally, and brought it to the band.”
