Willie Nelson, Jakob Dylan, And More Cover Tom Petty’s ‘For Real’

A host of artists have come together to record a brand-new version of late rock star Tom Petty‘s “For Real.”

Featured on the vocals of the cover are Willie Nelson and his sons, Micah and Lukas, Bob Dylan‘s son Jakob Dylan, George Harrison’s son Dhani Harrison and Amos Lee.

“When I first was sent this song asking if I wanted to record it, I was quite frankly dumbfounded,” Lukas Nelson shared with Rolling Stone. “It was the whole manifesto of our band in a song.”

“It just shows how connected artists who have integrity are with others who share the same passion and fire for being honest with their soul,” he added. “Fearless and real.”

Included on The Best of Everything collection by Petty that was released posthumously in March of this year, benefits from the single will directly go to Midnight Mission, a homeless shelter in Los Angeles that Petty supported throughout his career.
