Willie Nelson posts video for cover of Pearl Jam's 'Just Breathe' - watch
The track features on the country musician's new album 'Heroes'
Scroll down to watch the video, which sees Nelson singing and playing guitar alongside his son Lukas whilst the pair go on a road trip together. The song is taken from Nelson's latest album, 'Heroes', which also sees him covering tracks by Coldplay and Tom Waits, as well as collaborating with rapper Snoop Dogg on the pro-cannabis track 'Roll Me Up'.
Willie Nelson recently insisted that legalising marijuana would save "a whole lotta" lives and money. The country singer told the Guardian that smoking weed wasn't "dangerous healthwise" and said it should be decriminalised.
Asked whether the drug should be legalised, he replied: "It has to, because economically we need the money – why give it to criminals? Most people realise it's not a deadly drug like cocaine or cigarettes."
Nelson – who was arrested in 2010 for marijuana possession – last month turned down Roseanne Barr's offer to be her Presidential running mate. Nelson has released over 200 albums and won seven Grammy Awards during his career.
