Neil Young and Promise of the Real have unveiled the video for their surprise new song “Children of Destiny.”

The video, directed by Young’s Shakey Pictures, combines footage of recent large-scale protests alongside patriotic imagery like children waving American flags and Fourth of July cookouts.

“Preserve the land and save the seas for the children of destiny / The children of you and me,” Young sings on the track. “Stand up for what you believe / Resist the powers that be / Preserve the ways of democracy so the children can be free.”

Young recorded the song at Hollywood, California’s famed Capitol Studios alongside his frequent collaborators Promise of the Real – featuring Willie Nelson’s sons Lukas and Micah Nelson – and a 56-piece orchestra; in total, 62 musicians played on the track.

The rocker and Micah Nelson announced “Children of Destiny” in a celebratory Facebook Live video.

“Children of Destiny” is available to purchase or stream at all major digital retailers and streaming sites. It’s unclear whether the song is a one-off single or part of a larger project.

Willie and Leon: “One for the Road” Re-Release (2017)

In 1979, British inflation was 18 per cent, Margaret Thatcher was elected British prime minister, the Soviet Union invaded Afghanistan, Sony launched the Walkman and Willie Nelson and Leon Russell released One for the Road.

Those events are history but this album sounds remarkably fresh on its re-release, production and performance losing nothing in the years. Russell went the way of all flesh last November but Willie soldiers on, his ubiquity making no dent in his status as one of the all-time great stylists.

Here, he shares the honours with Russell’s dusty country gospel voice on a mix of Great American Songbook classics, Nashville standards and “Danny Boy”.

Alan Robinson’s sleeve notes state: “Part party hearty, part tears in the whiskey, it stands as something of a minor gem in both of these stellar artists’ body of work.” Hard to disagree.

Toby Keith with Willie Nelson on new single, “Wacky Tobaccy”

Toby Keith knows you can’t do a country song about cannabis without having Willie Nelson involved in some capacity.

On Thursday, the country superstar released “Wacky Tobaccy,” a ditty about the joys of smoking marijuana ? the real stuff the lyrics emphasize, not the synthetic kind.

Although Keith has collaborated with Nelson before, the Red-Headed Stranger only appears on camera this time.

“Willie Nelson’s in the video. He didn’t sing on it, but he’s in the video,” Keith told News OK, adding that he favors legalizing pot because “if you drink liquor you ought to be able to smoke weed.”

No word on whether Keith mentioned this to Donald Trump when they visited Saudi Arabia together back in May.
