Lukas Nelson‘s latest album, Sticks and Stones, is slated for July 14 via 6ACE Records/Thirty Tigers. Nelson debuted the video for the first single, “More Than Friends” with Lainey Wilson today (March 22) on CMT.
“When I wrote ‘More Than Friends,’ I had always envisioned it as a duet,” he shares. “I am a big fan of Lainey and she was at the top of my list of artists I wanted to sing with me on this track. When we sent her the song, I was thrilled to hear back that she loved it and wanted to do it.”
“‘More Than Friends’ is a modern-day take on the musical, kindred spirits of icons like Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers,” says Wilson. “I’m so honored to be able to work with someone as talented as Lukas. His artistry and storytelling within music is unlike any other.”
Across the twelve tracks on Sticks and Stones, Nelson explores the universal human experiences of love, celebration, longing and humor. Self-produced by Nelson and his longtime band, POTR, the collection captures the group’s musical power and the electric live performances they’re known for.
“This album is about celebrating the human connection, joy and excitement,” says Nelson. “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.”
Additionally, Nelson and POTR will kick off their spring headline tour on April 1 in Charles Town, West Virginia. The band will visit 18 cities, with two nights in Wilmington, North Carolina as well as stops in New Orleans, Texas and four shows in Southern California, followed by a nine-show run across the U.K. and Ireland in June.
