New Album Lukas Nelson + POTR

Out July 14

GRAMMY Award-winning artist Lukas Nelson will release his new album Sticks and Stones on July 14 via 6ACE Records/Thirty Tigers. The official music video for the first single “More Than Friends” featuring CMA and ACM Award-winning artist Lainey Wilson is now available:

“When I wrote ‘More Than Friends,’ I had always envisioned it as a duet. 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.”


The twelve songs on Sticks and Stones were written solely by Nelson and cover, according to the media release ‘the universal human experiences of love, celebration, longing and humor’. The new release was produced by Nelson.

“This album is about celebrating the human connection, joy and excitement. 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.”


Ahead of the release, Nelson + POTR will kick off their headline tour in the USA on April 1, visiting eighteen cities on the tour, followed by a nine-show run across the U.K. and Ireland in June.
