Willie Nelson Releases “Me and You” Single with Music Video

“Me and You”–the second song and video from Willie Nelson‘s forthcoming studio album Last Man Standing–makes its debut online today, Wednesday, March 14. (The album’s title track was released as a single and video earlier this year.)

This latest video arrives just before Willie Nelson and Family headline the Luck Reunion Festival, an annual day-long music celebration dedicated to honoring rogue music legends and today’s artists imprinting American roots culture on their own terms, which is held at Willie’s ranch in Luck, Texas on Thursday, March 15.

Lensed during the recording session, “Me and You” features Willie and longtime friend/producer/collaborator Buddy Cannon creating an electrifying new addition to the Willie Nelson catalog. As Cannon tells Nelson at the opening of the video, “You’ve got a lot of singing to do,” a sentiment Willie takes to heart in an incandescent performance.

Arriving just in time for Willie’s 85th birthday (April 29), Last Man Standing will be available on CD, 12″ vinyl LP and digital formats on Friday, April 27.

Nelson’s 11th studio album for Legacy Recordings, Last Man Standing is the eagerly-awaited successor to Willie’s God’s Problem Child, which showcased seven Willie Nelson-Buddy Cannon compositions and debuted at #1 on the Country charts. Last Man Standing is comprised entirely of songs newly-penned by Willie and Buddy. The pair have been working together since 2008 with Cannon helming more than a dozen of Willie’s albums including 2014’s acclaimed Band of Brothers.

For an in-depth exploration of Willie Nelson’s essential new album, we’ve enclosed a revelatory essay penned by Mikal Gilmore, illuminated by discussions with Buddy Cannon and Mickey Raphael.

A major addition to the Willie Nelson canon, Last Man Standing is the latest chapter in the musical chronicles of an archetype of American music and the troubadour tradition.

Willie Nelson and Family have a full plate of tour dates scheduled for April, May, June and July with shows including the Outlaw Music Festival and Willie’s 4th of July Picnic. Full details on tour dates available on Willie’s website (http://willienelson.com/tour/)

The “Best of Farm Aid 2017”–featuring Farm Aid President and Founder Willie Nelson–will premiere on AXS TV Sunday, March 18.
