Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real added to their Soundcheck Songs video performance series with a live cover of Neil Young‘s lengthy “Like An Inca”, which was shared on Thursday. The latest addition to the country-rock outfit’s ongoing studio series follows the first two videos where they covered Paul Simon‘s “Obvious Child” and Dire Straits‘ “Romeo and Juliet”. Though Young’s original recording clocks in at 9:46 minutes, Nelson and his Promise Of the Real band manage to stretch the song just a tad for their live studio version. The new video presents the band in their studio while also blending in some nature-inspired psychedelic visuals during the 11:30 minute performance.

Young’s “Like An Inca” appears on his 1982 album, Trans. Lukas Nelson & Promise Of The Real are certainly familiar with the tune as they’ve been Neil’s backing band since 2015. Neil dusted off the song with Promise of the Real for the first time since 1982 in 2016, as per Sugar Mountain. Lukas Nelson & POTR cover Lukas’s song choice of “Romeo and Juliet” by Dire Straits.

The Soundcheck Songs performance sees Micah Nelson — who is a member of Neil Young & POTR — on slide guitar. As per custom with the new series, the cover was chosen by a member of Promise of the Real, which this week was percussionist Tato Melgar.
