Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real have announced the release of its next new album, Turn Off The News (Build A Garden) on June 14th. Nelson and POTR’s new album features contributions from Neil Young, Margo Price, Kesha, Lucius, Shooter Jennings, Sheryl Crow, his father Willie, and more.

The roots rocker, who performed a rocking and incredibly fun set last summer at the XPoNential Music Festival, will be back in the Philadelphia area in September opening for the Zac Brown Band.

Turn Off The News (Build A Garden) arrives on the heels of the group’s high-profile collaboration with Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper on 2018’s film and soundtrack, A Star Is Born. Lukas not only co-wrote and co-produced much of the film’s multi-platinum, Oscar-winning soundtrack, he also worked closely with Cooper in crafting the lead character’s (Jackson Maine) musical persona.

With the album announcement came an excellent new song, “Bad Case,” a Traveling Wilburys-style rocker. Co-produced with Lukas, the band and John Alagia, the super melodic song charges out of the gates with lots of guitars and energy. Listen to it below.
