Fresh on the heels of touring and recording with Neil Young, Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real are breaking out on their own with a new album and a busy touring schedule this summer and fall. POTR are currently on tour with Lukas’ father Willie Nelson for Willie’s Outlaw Music Festival Tour.

In between Outlaw Music appearances, POTR will head out on their own for a series of headlining and festival dates including engagements with singer-songwriter Nicki Bluhm. POTR will also be headlining the Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles on Oct. 4 (get tickets) before heading to Europe. You can find a full list of Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real dates below.

The band has also shared three tracks from their new, self-titled album with Rolling Stone. While the album will be POTR’s fourth studio effort, the songs are the first look at what will likely be POTR’s breakout record, with Nelson & POTR negotiating the nexus of country, rock and soul. Nelson and company also enlisted the help of some amazing singers to round out their new sound.

Superstar Lady Gaga joins Nelson in a duet on “Find Yourself,” while the ladies from Lucius join the band on “Set Me Down on a Cloud.” “Forget About Georgia” is a personal look from Nelson about a tough breakup. You can stream the tracks below. Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real is slated for release Aug. 25.
