Willie Nelson may be turning 80 this year but, as they say, age ain't nothing but a number. On April 16th, the same month the country legend becomes an octogenarian, he'll release his latest album, Let's Face the Music And Dance, a collection of American standards and country classics by Willie Nelson and Family. Now you can take an exclusive first listen to his rendition of the title track – originally written by Irving Berlin for the Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers film Follow the Fleet – which finds Nelson's dry drawl floating over a melody that slinks between sweet and something slightly more sinister.
