‘Me and You’ Second Teaser for Nelson’s ‘Last Man Standing’

By  | 

Willie Nelson’s new song and accompanying video entitled “Me and You” premiered on March 14 over YouTube and Vevo, giving fans an introduction to his upcoming studio album “Last Man Standing.” If the more than 97,000 views on its YouTube link (provided here) are any indication (since the date of writing this article), Nelson is set to have another hit on his hands.

Featuring Buddy Cannon (longtime friend, songwriter, and producer who has worked with Nelson since 2008) at the intro to the video, “Me and You” goes on to also feature Trigger, Nelson’s integral instrument, as well as a number of sepias and black and white scenes of Nelson himself, singing in the recording studio.

Fans of the artist will be happy to know that the song is the second from his forthcoming studio album “Last Man Standing” (its title track and video were released earlier this year) which they can anticipate being released this year. Coming in advance of the Luck Reunion Festival, at which Nelson will host and headline, the song is just a taste of more to come from this octogenarian that keeps on producing what he knows his fans will appreciate. The Luck Reunion Festival is a day-long musical celebration of today’s artists, as well as those that are considered rogue music legends, whose contribution to the industry is set on their own terms and features their American roots at its heart. Held at Willie’s ranch in Luck, Texas, the musical soiree of sorts was hosted on Thursday, March 15, and “Me and You” was, of course, on the set list.
