LEGACY RELEASING 13 NEW SONGS
IN TIME FOR WILLIE'S 84TH
2/1/17

Does anyone record as often as Willie Nelson? We ask because his ninth album since 2012—that’s an average of one every eight months or so—is slated for release on 4/28. But as long as they keep charting and he keeps singing so well, why would anyone mind?

Sony’s Legacy Recordings will release God's Problem Child, which features 13 new compositions, seven of which were recently longtime collaborator and producer Buddy Cannon. The album’s release coincides with Willie's 84th birthday on 4/29. (You’d think he’d have changed it to 4/20 by now.)

The title track, penned by Jamey Johnson and Tony Joe White, includes vocals from the writers and the late Leon Russell; it’s possible this was Russell's last recording.

Autographed CDs, vinyl, T-shirts and such are already on sale over at PledgeMusic.

Nelson is currently up for a Grammy Award in the Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album category for Summertime: Willie Nelson Sings Gershwin.

The track list:

1. Little House On The Hill (Lyndel Rhodes)

2. Old Timer (Donnie Fritz/Lenny LeBlanc)

3. True Love (Willie Nelson/Buddy Cannon)

4. Delete And Fast Forward (Willie Nelson/Buddy Cannon)

5. A Woman's Love (Mike Reid/Sam Hunter)

6. Your Memory Has A Mind Of Its Own (Willie Nelson/Buddy Cannon)

7. Butterfly (Sonny Throckmorton/Mark Sherrill)

8. Still Not Dead (Willie Nelson/Buddy Cannon)

9. God's Problem Child (Jamey Johnson/Tony Joe White)

10. It Gets Easier (Willie Nelson/Buddy Cannon)

11. Lady Luck (Willie Nelson/Buddy Cannon)

12. I Made A Mistake (Willie Nelson/Buddy Cannon)

13. He Won't Ever Be Gone (Gary Nicholson)
