Lukas Nelson was on the phone when he got word that a dear family friend had passed away. She had lost her battle with cancer, while COVID was still keeping the world under lockdown at the time. No one was even able to be with her family to mourn such a devastating loss. As Nelson gazed into the night sky, he recalled something his friend had said: When it was her time to go, she wouldn’t be that far away from her loved ones, just a few stars apart…
The title track to Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real‘s latest LP A Few Stars Apart is about keeping that closeness alive, despite the separation of long distances. Nelson, who’s spent most of his life on the road with his band or touring with Neil Young, took the idea of this intimate connection to heart. His album is about the return home – and simply being with the stillness.
