Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real returned on Friday with a new track “Leave ‘Em Behind”, It’s the second single off the band’s upcoming album. “A Few Stars Apart”, The Dave Cobb-produced album is due out on June 11th via Fantasy Records.

In “Leave ‘Em Behind”, Nelson sings of letting go of trauma and severing toxic relationships in the interest of self-preservation. A profoundly progressive song packaged in an accessible alt-country style, “Leave ‘Em Behind” is a paradigm of the rising generation of country revivalist artists. Alongside fellow songwriters like Jason IsbellAmanda ShiresSturgill Simpson, and many others, the spawn of country icon Willie Nelson is working to bring the genre into the modern era and destigmatize “country” from being a dirty word in the contemporary musical zeitgeist.

Already one of “54 Most Anticipated Albums of 2021,” A Few Stars Apart is a testament to finding a human connection: between close family and friends, as well as one’s own heart. Produced by Grammy Award winning producer Dave Cobb, the album was inspired by the stillness Nelson found while riding out the beginning of the pandemic with his family in Texas and was recorded with the full band live on eight-track tape over three weeks at Nashville’s historic RCA Studio A. The eleven songs reveal what it means to come home again, to be still, and to find community—and yourself.

“Leave ’em Behind” is off of Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real’s new album, “A Few Stars Apart”,
