Nelson, the band’s guitarist-frontman (and son of Willie Nelson), tells Rolling Stone that he wrote “Set Me Down on a Cloud” two years ago for a friend who lost her child in a tragic accident. “I tried not to be too specific because I realize that we can all relate to loss as people,” he says. “Now that song has become about having to lose someone you love.”

He drew on personal romantic history for “Forget About Georgia,” which the title alluding to an ex-girlfriend. “I used to go out with this girl named Georgia,” he says. “And when we stopped seeing each other, it made things hard because I would go out with my dad on tour and play ‘Georgia on My Mind’ with him, and it made it impossible to forget about her.”

Nelson says that “Find Yourself,” which he wrote right after “Forget About Georgia,” is about “taking my power back and owning the love that I deserve.”

“All of the amazing experiences we’ve had have led up to this point,” he told RS in a statement, speaking of the new album as a whole. “We’ve all grown so much – the band as a unit and me as a songwriter. It’s all come together in a really beautiful way, we’re thrilled to finally share this new music with the world.”
