Country legend Willie Nelson has recruited his sons for a brand new LP that features covers of country classics.

Willie Nelson and the Boys, due out on Oct. 20, will feature recordings of tracks from Hank Williams, Hank Snow and more. Both of Nelson’s sons, Lukas and Micah, join their father on vocals and backing instrumentation for the record. The collection is a part of Nelson’s ongoing archival recording series, Willie’s Stash. This new LP follows up his 2014 record December Day, which also featured the vocal stylings of his sister, Bobbie.

The record features all brand-new recordings that were produced by Buddy Cannon and tracked in Nelson’s hometown of Austin, Texas. Cannon also co-produced Nelson’s most recent album, God’s Problem Child.
