Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real and Nikki Lane will embark on a thirteen date Stagecoach Spotlight Tour kicking off November 1 in Chicago, and including a stop November 18 at the iconic Levon Helm Studios.
Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real have quietly developed into one of America’s most dazzling new live acts, playing hundreds of shows and major festivals all over the world, attracting a deeply devoted underground following.
Still, with a bounty of invaluable experience under their belts, nothing foretold the artistic leap of Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real’s new, self-titled album; a mesmerizing, emotionally genuine, endlessly rewarding work of cosmic country soul set for release on August 25 via Fantasy Records. The new album includes twelve Lukas Nelson originals that draw on his country and rock lineage, including literate Texas songsmiths like his father, Willie Nelson and ‘uncles’ Kris Kristofferson and Waylon Jennings, along with the enduring influence of J.J. Cale, The Band, Clapton-era Delaney & Bonnie and of course, his mentor Neil Young. Jess Wolfe and Holly Lessig of the indie-pop group Lucius contribute background vocals on five tracks evoking Exile on Main St.’s ecstatic, gospel-rooted harmonies, and Lady Gaga added stirring background vocals to “Carolina” and “Find Yourself.” Listen to “Find Yourself,” “Forget About Georgia,” and “Set Me Down On A Cloud” HERE
“We have seen some incredible strides by Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real over the past year and this new record seems to be something truly special. We have been discussing doing something together for a long time and we have decided now is the time,” said Stacy Vee, talent buyer for Stagecoach and the Stagecoach Spotlight Tour. “We also decided our work with Nikki Lane was far from done so we asked her to come along. This tour will be one for the storybooks!
Tickets for the Stagecoach Spotlight Tour go on sale this Friday, August 4 at 10AM local time.
