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.
