Neil Young and Crazy Horse - Americana

Neil and the Horse shave redone American classic’s Crazy Horse style for ‘Americana’, due out June 5 on Reprise.

The album is filled with mostly-traditional American songs updated with a new sound.

For their take on ‘She’ll Be Comin’ Round the Mountain’, they’ve gone back to the song’s roots as an African American spiritual that talks of the second coming of Jesus and the Rapture (the “she” refers to the chariot on which Jesus arrives).
