Info for Last Man Standing

Rechtzeitig vor seinem 85. Geburtstag am 29. April 2018 beglückt Country-Legende Willie Nelson seine Fans mit einem neunen Album: "Last Man Standing". Das Album besteht ausschließlich aus neuen Willie Nelson-Kompositionen, die in Zusammenarbeit mit seinem langjährigen musikalischen Partner und Produzenten Buddy Cannon entstanden.

"Last Man Standing" ist ein würdiger Nachfolger zum letztjährigen Longplayer „God’s Problem Child“, das sieben Nelson/Cannon-Stücke enthielt und die US Country-Charts auf Platz eins enterte. Die beiden arbeiten bereits seit 2008 zusammen, in dieser Zeit produzierte Cannon mehr als ein Dutzend Willie Nelson-Alben.

Die Art und Weise, wie das Songwriting Duo an den gemeinsamen Stücken arbeitet, ist durchaus ungewöhnlich und beginnt damit, dass die beiden sich per Kurznachrichten Songtexte mit Melodien hin- und herschicken. Diese unorthodoxe Arbeitsweise brachte letzten Endes zwölf neue Kompositionen hervor, die sich nun auf „Last Man Standing“ finden. „Willie ist ein Jazzsänger und Jazzmusiker“, erklärt Cannon. „Er ist ein Improvisations-Musiker. Es ist jedes Mal anders. Man nimmt einen guten Take auf und weiter geht’s.”

"Last Man Standing" ist eines der persönlichsten Alben in Nelsons Karriere und offenbart eine große emotionale Bandbreite an Themen, die ihn beschäftigen, von tief nachdenklichen Songs wie „Something You Get Through“ bis hin zu verspielten, fröhlichen Liedern wie „Me And You“ und „Ready To Roar“. Es ist ein Album, dass die Vergänglichkeit der Zeit anerkennt, während man sich an der Schönheit und an den Überraschungen der Welt erfreut. Willie Nelson schreibt und singt mit dem Witz und der Weisheit der Straße.

Willie Nelson
With a six-decade career and a catalog of more than 200 albums to his credit, the iconic Texas singer-songwriter Willie Nelsonhas earned a permanent position in pop music’s pantheon with songs combining the sophistication of Tin Pan Alley with the rough-and-tumble grit and emotional honesty of country music. He brought pop and country together on the radio in the early 1960s with unforgettable songs like “Crazy” (Patsy Cline), “Hello Walls” (Faron Young), “Funny How Time Slips Away” (Billy Walker), “Night Life” (Ray Price) and others and, by the mid-1970s, had become a superstar in his own right as a prime mover of a revolutionary and thriving outlaw country music scene. The Red Headed Stranger, Willie’s first album for Columbia Records in 1975, catapulted the artist to the front ranks of popularity, making his a name familiar in country and city households across America and around-the-world.

A seven-time Grammy Award winner, Willie Nelson has received numerous accolades including American Music Awards, Academy of Country Music Awards, Country Music Association Awards and others. He is a co-founder of Farm Aid, an annual series of fundraising events which began as an all-star benefit concert in 1985 to raise money for American family farmers. He continues to lobby against horse slaughter and produces his own blend of biodiesel fuel. An old-school road-dog troubadour with new school wheels, Willie plays concerts year-round, tirelessly touring on Honeysuckle Rose III (he rode his first two buses into the ground), taking his music and fans to places that are always worth the ride.

The very first musician to perform on the premiere episode of Austin City Limits in 1974, Willie Nelson was inducted into the inaugural class of the Austin City Limits Hall of Fame by fellow Texan Matthew McConaughey on Saturday, April 26, 2014. “There would be no Austin City Limits without Willie Nelson,” McConaughey told the audience assembled at the University of Texas at Austin, the original home of what is now America’s longest-running televised music program.

Willie Nelson, who turned 81 on April 29/April 30, is an American original, a sublime singer, master tunesmith and outlaw country’s most enduring archetype.

This album contains no booklet.
