Willie Nelson and Merle Haggard, two outlaw country legends — and noted marijuana enthusiasts — have released a new, well-timed video for "It's All Going to Pot," a celebratory cannabis anthem. 

The song features the old friends utilizing their cool, controlled voices to deliver humorous storytelling lyrics like these from Nelson's verse:

"Well I thought I had found me a girl/ Sweetest little thing in the world/ But all my jokes went up in smoke when I caught her making eyes at Merle / He said, sweet little honey, with her eye on your money is going to take every penny you got/ I said she's never gonna get it, cause I've already spent it Merle, it's all going to pot"

The song is off of the duos upcoming album, Django and Jimmie, which comes out June 2.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
