New Willie Nelson album, “Last Man Standing”

Willie Nelson, Last Man Standing

Last Man Standing, which came out on April 27th, is Willie’s 67th studio release. It’s the sort of quiet standout that he seems to be able to put into the world seemingly without even trying too hard. (It’s one of two albums he’s announced for 2018, and will be one of five released in the past three years.) A song like “Something You Get Through” is a stone-cold classic of a Willie ballad on mortality, love, and survival, and even the quirky tracks (there’s one called “Bad Breath”) display the kind of wit and charm that makes Willie, well, Willie.
