Neil Young & Crazy Horse have reunited in the studio to create their first album since 2012’s Psychedelic Pill.
Young announced at neilyoungarchives.com that “At least 11 new songs, all written recently, are going to be recorded starting this week”.
It continued, “Crazy Horse’s last studio album – ‘Psychedelic Pill’, was released in 2012 and this newest ‘Crazy Horse’ album should be released in 2019. Nils Lofgren is an original member of the Horse dating back to ‘After the Goldrush’ and ‘Tonight’s the Night’. Nils will be with Ralph Molina, Billy Talbot and I, making our new CRAZY HORSE music high in the Rockies”.
Young also says he is working on compiling left-overs that didn’t make albums or get released into a compilation ‘Greatest Misses Volume 1’. “There are more than enough of them to create an album called “Greatest Misses.” I think I am going to put that together,” he says. “These are studio tracks, finished records that did not become part of an album, yet are really cool records. Then there are the unreleased albums. Somewhere between ten and fifteen of those are ‘in the can’ or under construction. They all need to be reviewed. John Hanlon, John Hausmann, Tim Mulligan and myself are doing that all the time”.
In February Young announced that from the archives he was readying ‘Odeon/Budokan’ and Tuscaloosa’ as the next releases from the archive series. ‘Tuscaloosa’ recorded in 1973 was meant to be next. Then ‘Odeon/Budokan’ will follow a few months later.
There has been no further word on these releases.
