New York, NY – September 10, 2018 – Willie Nelson has premiered his third and final full video “One For My Baby (And One More For The Road)” — from his upcoming album My Way, being released on CD, vinyl, digital formats and as part of exclusive merchandise bundles this Friday, September 14th.
My Way, a collection of standards made famous by Willie’s close friend and fellow icon, Frank Sinatra, finds Willie (who’s written a few standards himself) swinging his way through some of the most beloved songs in the Great American Songbook. The album–which features lush string and horn arrangements–was produced by Grammy winners Buddy Cannon and Matt Rollings.
“One For My Baby (And One More For The Road)” follows the first two videos “I’ll Be Around” and “Summer Wind,” that were released over the summer. The new video for “One More For My Baby (And One More For The Road)” can be viewed here: https://WillieNelson.lnk.to/OFMB_Video

Recorded in the spirit of Willie’s legendary 1978 Stardust album (one of the first contemporary artists to “cover” the Great American Songbook) and 2016’s Summertime: Willie Nelson Sings Gershwin (a Best Traditional Vocal Album Grammy Award winner), My Way pays homage to one of his heroes.
“I learned a lot about phrasing listening to Frank,” Willie said recently in an interview for AARP magazine (June/July 2018). “He didn’t worry about behind the beat or in front of the beat, or whatever-he could sing it either way, and that’s the feel you have to have.”
That’s the attitude Willie brings to My Way with abiding classics like the album’s first single “Summer Wind” along with “It Was A Very Good Year,” “Fly Me To The Moon,” “What Is This Thing Called Love” (a duet with 9 time Grammy winner Norah Jones) and the anthemic title track, Frank done Willie’s way, one master vocalist channeling another.
