Neil Young Set To Record New Album With Crazy Horse
In case you opened this post without knowing, let's kick it off with one of the music world's biggest truisms. Neil Young is a total badass, and the music he's made with longtime backing band Crazy Horse is among the best that's ever been recorded. There hasn't been any new music from the combined forces of Neil Young & Crazy Horse for about nine years now, but according to Rolling Stone that long drought is about to be over.
The magazine confirmed Young's statement from this past weekend's Slamdance Film Festival that he would be playing with the full lineup of Crazy Horse again for the first time since the tour for 2003's Greendale and recording new material. Said new material is currently scheduled for release this spring, and hopefully that actually ends up happening - unlike the shelved album Toast back in 2000. We'll keep you posted, and in the meantime, fuck yeah.
