The first Crazy Horse album since 2003’s ‘Greendale’ does Crazy Horse versions of traditional classics like ‘She’ll Be Coming Round The Mountain’, ‘Tom Dooley’ and ‘Clementine’.

‘Tom Dooley’ becomes a Crazy Horse reinvention epic weighing in at 8:13.

The album features the classic Crazy Horse line-up of Neil Young, Bill Talbot, Frank ‘Poncho’ Sampedro and Ralph Molina.

Young commented in the album earlier this year at Sundance saying They’re songs we all know from Kindergarten.

Neil grew up in Canada which maybe accounts for his childhood memory of the final song ‘God Save The Queen’.

The Americana tracklisting is:
Oh Susannah
(5:03)
Clementine

(5:42)
Tom Dooley
(8:13)
Gallows Pole

(4:15)
Get A Job

(3:01)
Travel On

(6:47)
High Flyin’ Bird
She’ll Be Comin ’Round The Mountain (5:38)
This Land Is Your Land

(5:26)
Wayfarin’ Stranger

(3:07)
God Save The Queen (4:08)
Total playing time: 56:50

‘American’ will be released in the USA on June 5, 2012. The Australian release date is still to be scheduled.
