Willie Nelson has announced a new album of Frank Sinatra covers: That’s Life arrives on February 26, 2021 (via Legacy Recordings). It’s Nelson’s second record of Sinatra standards, following 2018’s My Way. The album is also Nelson’s follow-up to this year’s First Rose of Spring. Below, listen to Willie Nelson’s take on “A Cottage for Sale,” a song penned by Willard Robinson and Larry Conley that Frank Sinatra sang on his 1959 album No One Cares.
Buddy Cannon and Matt Rollings produced That’s Life, which was recorded at Hollywood’s Capitol Studios, with additional recording at Austin, Texas’ Pedernales Studios.
