Neil Young & Promise of the Real (the Americana group headed by Willie Nelson’s son Lukas Nelson) have shared the music video for their new track, “Children of Destiny.”

The patriotic video was surprise-released for the Fourth of July weekend and features gorgeous shots of the American landscape from sea to shining sea and children celebrating Independence Day—and of course, it wouldn’t be like Neil Young not to include some protest scenes and darker images of war.



According to Neil Young’s YouTube channel, Young and Promise of the Real were joined on the track by a 56-piece orchestra for the song. It seems to be a stand-alone single, but you can hear a little bit more about it in the Facebook Live video below!
