Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real added to their Soundcheck Songs video performance series with a live cover of Neil Young‘s lengthy “Like An Inca”, which was shared on Thursday. The latest addition to the country-rock outfit’s ongoing studio series follows the first two videos where they covered Paul Simon‘s “Obvious Child” and Dire Straits‘ “Romeo and Juliet”.
As per custom with the new series, the cover was chosen by a member of Promise of the Real, which this week was percussionist Tato Melgar. Watch Melgar explain why he opted for the Neil Young tune from 1982’s Trans in the video below.

Though Young’s original recording clocks in at 9:46 minutes, Nelson and his backing band manage to stretch the song just a tad for their live studio version. The new video presents the band in their studio while also blending in some nature-inspired psychedelic visuals during the 11:30 minute performance. Watch their cover in full below.
