Jakob Dylan, Dhani Harrison, Amos Lee, Lukas Nelson, Micah Nelson, & Willie Nelson – “For Real” (Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers Cover)
A group of roots-rockers including Jakob Dylan, Dhani Harrison, Amos Lee, Willie Nelson, and his sons Lukas and Micah have delivered a cover of “For Real,” the previously unreleased Heartbreakers song from 2000 that came out back in February. Titled “For Real – For Tom,” it’s being released ahead of Christmas as a benefit for LA homeless shelter The Midnight Mission.
Lukas Nelson tells Rolling Stone, “When I first was sent this song asking if I wanted to record it, I was quite frankly dumbfounded. It was the whole manifesto of our band [Promise of the Real] in a song. It just shows how connected artists who have integrity are with others who share the same passion and fire for being honest with their soul. Fearless and real.”
