Wednesday, April 5, 2017
– Willie Nelson is readying yet another album.
"God's Problem Child" will be out April 28 with 13 songs, including 7 recently written by with Buddy Cannon, his longtime collaborator and producer. The album is Nelson's first to debut all-new songs since "Band of Brothers" in 2014.
Nelson enjoyed success last time out as "Summertime: Willie Nelson Sings Gershwin" recently won a Grammy Award in the Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album category.
The release closes with "He Won't Ever Be Gone," a song written by Gary Nicholson that pays tribute to Merle Haggard. His last album was 2015's "Django and Jimmie," a musical collaboration with Nelson.
The disc is his 9th studio album since the release of "Heroes," his Legacy debut in 2012
