Hear Willie Nelson’s new song “The Border” from his upcoming album

The Border Wille Nelson

Willie Nelson will release his 75th solo studio album on May 31, about a month after his 91st birthday. The new record, The Border, will mark Willie’s 152nd career album and feature “10 newly recorded Willie Nelson studio performances,” including the just-released title track.

Listen to the lead single “The Border” – a cover of Rodney Crowell’s songs from his album “Texas” (2019) – throughout the week over in Willie’s Roadhouse (channel 61) on SiriusXM in your car and on the SiriusXM app. Written by Crowell and Allen Shamblin, the song chronicles the story of a border worker who is tired and hopeless due to his experiences and daily labour.

Buddy Cannon produced Willie’s upcoming album, which will include four new original songs penned by both Willie and Buddy. See the full tracklist below, and check out the song anytime on YouTube.

Last year, Willie released two studio albums, “I Don’t Know a Thing About Love” and “Bluegrass.” His productive 2023 followed his award-winning 2022 when he won the GRAMMY Award for Best Country Album for “A Beautiful Time.”

Additionally, this summer, Willie will headline another edition of the Outlaw Music Festival, which will feature icons like Bob Dylan, Robert Plant, and Allison Krauss.
