No one told Willie Nelson that you’re supposed to slow down when you reach your 80s, if not well before. The 81-year-old country legend has been remarkably productive over the last couple years, and has now announced Band of Brothers, a new album that will be out June 17.

Band of Brothers features 14 tracks, nine of which are new Willie-penned compositions. There’s also an interpretation of Vince Gill’s “Whenever You Come Around” and Billy Joe Shaver’s “The Git Go” with Jamey Johnson. A full tracklist appears below, and you can see the video for first single, “The Wall,” below.

Band of Brothers is the successor to Willie’s 2013 female duets album To All the Girls . . . , and is the fourth release as part of his historic arrangement with Legacy Records.
