Nelson delays new release until July

Monday, March 23, 2020 – Willie Nelson's 70th studio album, "First Rose of Spring," is being postponed until July due to the coronavirus, he announced today.

The disc, produced by Buddy Cannon, was first slated to drop on April 24, but now will be out on Friday, July 3.

"Most people will buy physical copies of Willie's record, and it seemed prudent to wait until more people were in the stores," said his publicist, Elaine Schock.

The singles "Our Song" and "First Rose Of Spring" have been released.

The cover of the release, which features a red rose, was designed by Willie's son, Micah, who is also a musician.

The track list is:
1. First Rose Of Spring (Randy Houser, Allen Shamblin and Mark Beeson)
2. Blue Star (Willie Nelson and Buddy Cannon)
3. I'll Break Out Again Tonight (Sanger "Whitey" Shafer and Doodle Owens)
4. Don't Let The Old Man In (Toby Keith)
5. Just Bummin' Around (Pete Graves)
6. Our Song (Chris Stapleton)
7. We Are The Cowboys (Billy Joe Shaver)
8. Stealing Home (Marla Cannon-Goodman, Casey Beathard and Don Sampson)
9. I'm The Only Hell My Mama Ever Raised (Wayne Kemp, Bobby Borchers and Mack Vickery)
10. Love Just Laughed (Willie Nelson and Buddy Cannon)
11. Yesterday When I Was Young (Hier Encore) (Charles Aznavour and Herbert Kretzmer)

This partnership, which ...
CD review - My Way Not one to rest on his laurels, Willie Nelson's second studio release of the calendar year finds the artist dipping back into the Great American Songbook.
