Neil Young Sheds More Light on New Album with Crazy Horse
It "stands as one of our most diverse albums I have ever made and I can't wait for you to hear it"
Published Apr 30, 2019Following the news that Neil Young was recording a new album with Crazy Horse, the Canadian songwriting legend opened up about the new record, saying fans can expect it out this fall.
Young made the ETA reveal in a new post on his website, writing, "We believe we have a great Crazy Horse album, one to stand alongside Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere, Sleeps with Angels, Psychedelic Pill and all the others."
Young went on to add, "Untitled at this moment, our Crazy Horse album with Nils [Lofgren], Ralphie [Molina] and Billy [Talbot] stands as one of our most diverse albums I have ever made and I can't wait for you to hear it."
As previously reported, the as-yet-untitled album will mark Young and Crazy Horse's first since 2012's Psychedelic Pill. That same year, they released the folk-indebted album Americana.
The upcoming album will also mark Crazy Horse's first project since guitarist Frank "Poncho" Sampedro quit the group after a 43 year run.
"I'm 70 and I'm retired now and want to stay home," Sampedro recently told Uncut. "People say, 'Isn't it sad you're not in Crazy Horse?' I don't think of it that way. I'll always be in Crazy Horse. I'm as big a part of Crazy Horse as anyone that's ever been in it."
While we await further details, Young recently announced a pair of Vancouver concerts set to take place on May 14 and 15. He also revealed the archival live album Tuscaloosa, which will arrive on June 7 via Warner Bros. Records.
