In the new issue of Rolling Stone, Willie Nelson discusses the joys of touring with his sons: "I've been hearing my licks come back better than they went out," he says. Now, one of his sons' bands, Lukas Nelson and the Promise of the Real, who have also opened for stars like B.B. King and John Fogerty, are bringing some of those licks to a new LP – their third – titled Love Yourself. Below, listen to an exclusive stream of one of its tracks, the casual, swaying "Find Yourself."

"This is my favorite song on the record – the most personal to me and yet I think anyone can relate to it," says Nelson. "I always feel like I'm cleaning my soul out when I sing it. It's my tribute to the soul musicians I grew up idolizing, and it's really fun to play live."

Currently, the band is in the middle of a late-summer tour that includes a stop at Raleigh's Farm Aid and closes in Folsom, California.
