Neil Young recorded his new album ‘Storytone’ live in the studio with a 92-piece orchestra.
Young produced ‘Storytone’ with Niko Bolas who also worked on the new Tim Wheatley Crooked Saint EP. Michael Bearden and Chris Walden conducted the orchestra.
‘Storytone’ will be available in a single orchestral version and a deluxe edition featuring both orchestra versions and solo versions of all 10 songs.
