Willie Nelson Announces New Album 'A Beautiful Time'

Willie Nelson has announced a new album titled A Beautiful Time. It will be released April 29 through Legacy Recordings to celebrate the singer's 89th birthday that same day.

The majority of the songs on A Beautiful Time were co-written by Nelson and Buddy Cannon. "I'll Love You Till the Day I Die," the first single from the album Nelson has shared, is technically a Rodney Crowell and Chris Stapleton original.

Not only will the LP include original tracks, but also covers. Nelson has added his versions of the Beatles’ classic “With a Little Help From My Friends” and Leonard Cohen’s 1988 song “Tower of Song.”

Nelson’s most recent albums, the Frank Sinatra tribute record That’s Life and the collaborative studio full-length The Willie Nelson Family, were both released in 2021. That same year, he teamed up with Michael McDonald to cover “Dreams of the San Joaquin” to raise money for migrant farm workers. He also covered David Bowie and Queen’s hit “Under Pressure” with Karen O.

Nelson is set to return to the road in March with appearances at Chris Stapleton’s Concert for Kentucky in April and at the New Orleans Jazz Fest in May. He’s also nominated for a Grammy for Best Traditional Pop Album for That’s Life at the April 3 Grammy Awards.
