Neil Young and Promise of the Real have shared a surprise new music video for their song “Children of Destiny,” a patriotic montage in celebration of the Fourth of July. Willie Nelson’s songs Lukas and Micah Nelson were involved in the new record, which also featured a 56-piece orchestra, totaling 62 musicians on the single. It is not established whether the song is part of a larger project that they are working on, or if it is just a single for the holiday.
“Preserve the land and save the seas for the children of destiny / The children of you and me,” the lyrics sing. “Stand up for what you believe / Resist the powers that be / Preserve the ways of democracy so the children can be free.” Watch the music video below:
Young and Micah announced “Children of Destiny” in a Facebook Live video yesterday, which features the two in a white car in a tree-draped driveway with a peace flag and confetti, or “covfefe.” The Facebook clip ends with a piece of paper that reads “resist.”
