Give the New Neil Young Album “Americana” a Free Listen

Posted 29 May 2012 in Albums of 2012, Albums of the 10s



Rolling Stone Magazine is providing a free stream of the new album “Americana.” The album will be released next Tuesday, June 5th.  It’s the first album with some of the members of Crazy Horse in nine years (Greendale). It’s the first album with all of Crazy Horse in 16 years (Broken Arrow).


Neil explained the newest project in a March 19 press release.

“A very young choir of children plays with Crazy Horse” he said. “They’re songs we all know from kindergarten, but Crazy Horse has rearranged them, and they now belong to us.”

“What ties these songs together is the fact that while they may represent an America that may no longer exist. The emotions and scenarios behind these songs still resonate with what’s going on in the country today with equal, if not greater impact nearly 200 years later. The lyrics reflect the same concerns and are still remarkably meaningful to a society going through economic and cultural upheaval, especially during an election year. They are just as poignant and powerful today as the day they were written.”
