Willie Nelson Announces New Album Of Sinatra Songs, ‘My Way’
Willie Nelson and Frank Sinatra had a long, storied friendship. They even appeared in several space travel PSAs together! After weeks of teasing an impending new album on social media, Nelson has announced his next project, My Way, a record of Sinatra covers reinterpreted in a country context.
Rolling Stone Country reports that My Way was co-produced by Buddy Cannon and Matt Rollings and features wistful string arrangements backing up Willie’s perfectly placed vocals and steady backing band. The 11-track record of Sinatra standards is Nelson’s second release of 2018, following April’s Last Man Standing.
My Way hits record stores on September 14. You can listen to Willie’s version of “Summer Wind” below.
