Neil Young released Earth, new live album.
Neil Young has announced his new album entitled Earth, it's due out on June 17. Its tracklisting includes the previously-unshared "I Won't Quit" along with highlights from Young's discography. For Earth, Young added new musical overdubs to the mixes, along with tons of nature sounds. Bears, birds, crickets, bees, horses, cows, and "sounds of the earth" can all be heard throughout the album, juxtaposed with "city sounds" like car horns. Young will play full album, and discuss and themes at the Natural History Museum Los Angeles County today (May 6).
It's the first time he helds a public album preview event. The audio will be streamed through his Pono service.
In a recent interview Neil talking about his new album: “Ninety-eight uninterrupted minutes long, EARTH flows as a collection of 13 songs from throughout my life, songs I have written about living here on our planet together. Our animal kingdom is well represented in the audience as well, and the animals, insects, birds, and mammals actually take over the performances of the songs at times”.
But the surprise do not end here: two rare films starring the musician are coming to DVD and Blu-Ray for the first time. Digitally-remastered versions of 1979's concert film Rust Never Sleeps and 982's comedy Human Highway (which stars Young, Dennis Hopper, Russ Tamblyn, and Devo) arrive June 10 via Reprise.
