Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real to release second album on June 14
7 May 2019 news
Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real have announced that their second studio album, ‘Turn Off The News (Build a Garden)’, is to be released on June 14.
The record – which has been recorded at Shangri-La in Malibu and the Village Studios in West Los Angeles – will mark the follow up to the self-titled debut album that was released in August 2017.
Speaking to Maverick back in October 2018, Nelson revealed that he never wants to stand still when it comes to creating music and that he had a fair amount of songs for ‘Turn Off The News (Build a Garden)’ ready and waiting to be mixed.
“I’m always moving in a different direction. I’ve never really been an artist that stayed in one place, so it’s always some new interpretation, always something new to test my vocals, always something new for my guitar work and that reflects in my songs. There’s nothing stagnant about what we’re doing.
“There’s new inspiration all the time and it changes as time goes by, so for the new record – we just finished the new record, we’ve got 13 or 14 songs done and we’re going to go in and mix them and will hopefully have something for a spring release – might sound completely different.”
Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real will also be entertaining UK audiences this summer – on June 27, he will be performing at O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire in London with The Wandering Hearts as support, while the next day (June 28), he will be appearing at Glastonbury Festival. Also, on July 14, Nelson will be performing at Hyde Park in support of Neil Young.
