Lukas Nelson and Lainey Wilson Say Seize the Night on New Duet ‘More Than Friends’


The track appears on Nelson's just announced album Sticks and Stones

Lukas Nelson and Lainey Wilson lobby for a night with benefits (and zero regrets) in their spunky new duet “More Than Friends.” It’s a bright, rollicking country-rock anthem and announces Nelson’s new album, Sticks and Stones, the follow-up to Nelson’s A Few Stars Apart.

“Let’s pretend we’re more than friends tonight,” Nelson sings, teeing up the cheeky message of the collab, before both harmonize on the carpe diem pre-chorus: “Forget tomorrow, we can face the music then/but I promise you tonight will never end.”

“More Than Friends” is the first taste of Nelson’s upcoming LP Sticks and Stones, due July 14. In a statement, the singer-guitarist (and son of the legendary Willie Nelson) says he always envisioned the song as a duet. “I am a big fan of Lainey and she was at the top of my list of artists I wanted to sing with me on this track,” he said. “When we sent her the song, I was thrilled to hear back that she loved it and wanted to do it.”
