Country legend Willie Nelson is gearing up to release a brand new record later this year that tackles everything from old age to American politics.

According to Rolling Stone, God’s Problem Child is set for release this April. It includes the track “Delete and Fast-Forward,” a not-so-subtle nod to the U.S. President-elect Donald Trump. “The elections are over and nobody wins/But don’t worry too much, you’ll go crazy again,” the lyrics proclaim.

The project was co-written with producer Buddy Cannon, a longtime collaborator and friend of Nelson’s. It features multiple new tracks, including the aptly-titled “I’m Not Dead.” After surviving a year where many music legends passed on, Nelson felt the need to remind everyone that he doesn’t plan on leaving any time soon.

“I got up two or three times in the last couple of years and read the paper where I’d passed away,” he explained. “So I just wanted to let ’em know that’s a lot of horseshit.”

Leon Russell, who also passed away in 2016, makes an appearance on the song, penned by Jamey Johnson and Tony Joe White.

Additional details about the release are expected in the coming weeks. Until then, fans can see Nelson out on the road through the end of May. You can find a full list of upcoming tour dates at his official website.
