Neil Young has revealed that he plans to release a new record with long-time collaborative partners Crazy Horse. In a post on the fan website, the acclaimed rocker announced the project over the weekend during Park City, Utah’s Slamdance Film Festival, where he was out supporting the Jonathan Demme-directed film Journeys. Both Rolling Stone and the Crazy Horse drummer have confirmed the news.
However in the same post, it was hinted that there are currently two albums. One that is finished, and the other that is currently being recorded. In an interview with Rolling Stone in 2008, Young told the magazine that there was a recorded album with Crazy Horse, however it had been shelved. Titled Toast, the record, according to Young, was “really dark” and featured “everything that the best Crazy Horse albums have had.”
Neil Young and Crazy Horse have not played together since 2004, so we will just have to wait it out and see what happens. If it happens.
