Neil Young Debuts New Single
Listen to his version of 'Oh Susannah' here
The single is lifted from Young's forthcoming album, Americana, which is is his first collaboration with Crazy Horse since 2003 (and the first album with the full Crazy Horse line-up of Billy Talbot, Ralph Molina and Frank Sampedro since 1996's 'Broken Arrow').
The album is a collection of covers of traditional American folk songs and Young says of his song choices "They represent an America that may no longer exist. The emotions and scenarios behind these songs still resonate with what's going on in the country today with equal, if not greater impact nearly 200 years later. The lyrics reflect the same concerns and are still remarkably meaningful to a society going through economic and cultural upheaval, especially during an election year. They are just as poignant and powerful today as the day they were written."
