Neil Young Recording With Crazy Horse
At least one album is due to be released this yearFollowing a report on fansite Thasher's Wheat, Rolling Stone have now confirmed that Young will be reuniting with his famous backing band on at least one new record this year.
Young apparently shared the news over the weekend at the Slamdance Film Festival in Park City, Utah, at an event with Jonathan Demme to promote their new movie Journeys.
The full line-up of Crazy Horse hasn't backed Young on an album since Broken Arrow in 1996, though they did record an LP in 2000 called Toast that Neil opted to shelf. "It's great rock & roll, very moody, kind of jazzy," Young told Rolling Stone in 2008, who was then contemplating a release of the disc. "It's really dark. It's got everything that the best Crazy Horse albums have had. It won't be the most commercial Crazy Horse album ever out."
Thrasher's Wheat reports that he's already recorded one album with Crazy Horse and another is in the works. It's unclear if Toast is the finished album mentioned.
A spring release for one of the albums is looking to be a possibility.
