Lady Gaga isn’t done branching into the country rock sound from her 2016 album, Joanne. With tracks like “Angel Down” and “Million Reasons,” Gaga showed off her versatility yet again on her fifth studio album, delivering guitar-driven tracks that have given way for a new set of fans to connect with Mother Monste
To promote Joanne, Gaga returned to her roots as a singer for a Led Zeppelin cover band. Going full country rock, Gaga set off on a number of secret Dive Bar dates with Bud Light in 2016, playing small shows and touting a guitar and cut off denim shorts for the intimate gigs. Gaga has announced that she’ll be hitting the road for more Dive Bar shows before kicking off her Joanne World Tour on August 1 in Vancouver, but that’s not the only way the six-time Grammy winner is continuing her venture into musical territory that has been absent from her previous albums.
Now, Gaga has teamed up with Lukas Nelson & The Promise of the Real, an American rock group preparing to release fifth studio album. Gaga appears on the tracks “Find Yourself” and “Set Me Down on a Cloud,” which are available for streaming on SoundCloud now along with the track “Forget About Georgia.”
Gaga is the latest big-name musician to be connected with the rockers. The band recently toured and recorded with Canadian musical icon Neil Young, releasing The Monsanto Years with Young in 2015. As for lead singer Lukas Nelson, his father is famed singer Willie Nelson.
Lukas Nelson and Promise of the Real are set to release their new self-title LP on August 25. As for Gaga, the singer is preparing for her Joanne World Tour, which she has confirmed will feature new music. Maybe something a little bit country, a little bit rock and roll?
