LUKAS NELSON & POTR – ” Alcohallelujah “

Posted: May 11, 2023 in MUSIC

Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real fall to their knees before the almighty bottle on their new single, “Alcohallelujah”. The “spiritual” song is the second single from the alt-country outfit’s upcoming seventh album, “Sticks and Stones”.

With the classic Nelson wit he inherited from his father, Willie, Lukas profiles a boozy life on the edge. “Sunday fun day” leads to “headache Monday” and a wife tired of “boozy lovin’”. Praying for forgiveness and asking the barroom congregation for an “Alcohallelujah”, Nelson is “drinkin’ on a prayer” as the jug of communion wine comes by for a holy pull.

Following the band’s emotionally weighty 2021 album, “A Few Stars Apart”, Nelson and Promise of the Real decided to go back to the fundamentals and make a record that’s as fun to hear as it is to play. The album’s lead single, “More Than Friends“, featuring Lainey Wilson, introduced the 12-track album’s new aura, which comes in stark contrast to “A Few Stars Apart‘s” reflection on the distance caused by the COVID pandemic.

“This album is about celebrating the human connection, joy and excitement,” Nelson said. “We went from quiet and introspective on “A Few Stars Apart” to something big and fun to really showcase the band’s talent and performance. You can listen to the album “Sticks and Stones” from start to finish and get the songs to dance to and then the quiet, poignant songs. To me, this album is the perfect setlist.”

Check out “Alcohallelujah”, the latest track from the upcoming Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real album “Sticks and Stones”, available here for pre-order. The album is out on July 14th via 6ACE Records/Thirty Tigers. The band will tour Ireland and the U.K. in June
