Folk and country music legend Willie Nelson will be releasing new music this spring, and included on the LP will be a tribute to his late friend Merle Haggard.
God’s Problem Child is due out on April 28th, a day before Nelson’s 84th birthday. The late Leon Russell lends his vocals to the project as well.
Closing out the album is the track He Won’t Ever Be Gone, a song memorializing Haggard who passed away last April at the age of 79 from complications from pneumonia.
Collaborations with long-time producer Buddy Cannon feature prominently on the album, Little House on the Hill, was written by Cannon’s 92-year-old mother. Another song on the album, Delete and Fast Forward, gets political by talking about the 2016 presidential elections.
You can preorder the album bundled with exclusive merchandise through PledgeMusic.
