Hi-Res
Lukas Nelson has compared his rootsy Promise of the Real to The Band, noting: "They supported so many incredible people throughout their career, but they were also focused on their own music." (Nelson has played behind Neil Young as well as his dad, Willie.) You can also catch a Band vibe on "Out In LA," which is all jam-band ease before breaking into a Robbie Robertson-esque guitar solo, and the loose-limbed "Lotta Fun," featuring Margo Price on backing vocals. Elsewhere, Sheryl Crow lends warmth to the title track and Kesha gets funky on "Save A Little Heartache." There's plenty of genre-hopping: jangle-pop for "Bad Case," Hollies-ish sweetness for "Where Does Love Go,” the Southern rock boogie of "Something Real" and a surprising tropical shine on "Stars Made of You." The singer’s mentors show up — Willie and his beloved guitar Trigger for "Mystery" and Young playing pump organ on an acoustic version of the title track — but Nelson is right: his sound is his own. © Qobuz

Hi-Res Booklet
After creating a stir for himself having performed alongside Neil Young on stage as well as on records (The Monsanto Years, Earth and The Visitor), Lukas Nelson finally starts his solo career with the simply titled Lukas Nelson & Promise Of The Real. With his band, Promise Of The Real funnily enough, he had already penned three other opuses that had remained rather confidential: Promise Of The Real in 2010, Wasted in 2012 and Something Real in 2016. This time, the work that was released during the Autumn of 2017 benefits from a real production and a more serious cast. It mostly abounds with everything that Willie Nelson’s son has ever heard, from when he was born right up until now: his father’s records, of course, those of his Canadian employer as well, but also a lot of blues, southern soul, guitar rock and music from the 70s. A vast catchall of Americana that never sounds dusty, even if it’s not really original. But Lukas Nelson puts such a veneer of sincerity and vitality into his songs that it’s hard not to follow him on his 100% American road trip… As for guests, the entire family’s there (the dad Willie, aunt Bobbie and brother Micah), as well as, in the choruses of two titles… Lady Gaga! Yes, the real Lady Gaga, who we never imagined in such a rootsy environment. © CM/Qobuz
