Lukas Nelson & Promise Of The Real “Turn Off The News (Build A Garden)” – Listen

What do we love most about Lukas Nelson ?  Is that his band name combined with his song titles are guaranteed to over-run the line length?  Well, that’s cool, but it’s not it.  Is it that Promise of the Real rock hard like a younger Crazy Horse?  Well, that’s cool too but….you know what we really like ?  He’s as prolific as his old man, as prolific as his sometime bandmate Neil Young.  He just puts out a lot of stuff and it’s really good.  Why, when you think about it, would that not be what we like about  Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real?

This song is the title track of the most recent album.  It ties in with the band’s interest in environmental matters – little things like keeping a planet that is habitable by human beings – and it has Sheryl Crow on backing vocals.  That’s all you need to know, so hit go on the lyric video and enjoy.

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
