Video of Neil Young's "Angry World" from Le Noise

Neil Young – “Angry World” Video (Stereogum Premiere) - Stereogum

A new song from Neil Young's upcoming 'Le Noise'.

And quite a cool video, too. Some interesting comments on the approach to making the videos in interview below with Producer Daniel Lanios.

And here's our Blu-Ray Tip of the Moment....

Play this video using your Blu-Ray player! We cued this up last night and cranked to "11" on our audio/video system and it ROCKED!

We try and do this with high resolution YouTube videos rather than play and listen thru crappy computer speakers while watching a little tiny square.

Now navigating URL's is tricky with the Sony PS-3. So what we do is that we have Thrasher's Wheat bookmarked on our Blu-Ray. So we just go to the TW bookmark and scroll to the video and play. Viola!

"ANGRY WORLD" lyrics by Neil Young

Some see life as a broken promise
Some see life as an endless fight
They think they live in the age of darkness
They think they live in the age of Light

It's an Angry world
And everything is gonna be all right
Yeah it's an angry world
Yeah it's an angry world

Some see life as hope eternal
Some see life as a business plan
Some will go to hell's inferno
For screwing up their life in freedom land

It's an Angry world
For the business man and the fisher man
It's an Angry world
And no doubt everything will go as planned
Yeah it's an angry world
Yeah it's an angry world

From | Neil Young Goes Electric for 'Le Noise' by Gary Graff:
"Young knew he wanted to make a purely solo album -- just himself and a guitar -- when he recruited Daniel Lanois to produce the upcoming 'Le Noise.' That it finds him primarily playing electric guitar, however, came as a surprise.

'It evolved from being solo acoustic into being solo electric,' Young tells The singer-songwriter says that after a few acoustic songs were initially recorded, he pulled out 'The Hitchhiker,' an autobiographical song Young first wrote around 1975, and began working it up for 'Le Noise.' 'Then I thought to myself, 'This is definitely going to be better electric than acoustic,' Young recalls. 'So we tried it and it sounded really interesting and really good and strong...So I went home and got my white [Gretsch] Falcon out...and I wrote a sound or two like that and then brought them in and that kind of opened the door for us.'

Lanois adds that the transition to electric 'was not a deliberate move or anything. Neil was able to go off and write some additional songs, and I think there was a subconscious force at play that brought this material to the table for us.'

Young and Lanois and his team recorded 'Le Noise' at the producer's home studio in Los Angeles' Silverlake area, recording a couple songs at a time during full moon or new moon sessions. The sessions were also filmed by Lanois cohort Adam Vollick, who created films to accompany each of the eight tracks on deluxe versions of 'Le Noise,' which comes out Sept. 28, and on a Blu-ray disc due in November.

'We've been developing this simple philosophy that, as the magic moment is unfolding musically, let the lense capture it with one camera,' Lanois notes.

'Le Noise' will also be released as an App that Young says 'is based on my 'Archives' Blu-ray set' with a variety of interactive extras including original lyric manuscripts, photos, a career timeline and possibly alternate or live takes of the songs, the latter of which come from preview performances while he was on tour earlier this year. 'What it does is bring you back to the album cover experience we used to get when the album cover was something tangible and big enough to actually read and see,' Young explains. '(The App) creates a version of it for the iPad or for a computer or a smart phone.'

I'm loving the sound, concept, and the video, but the lyrics for this song are pretty forgettable and unimaginative.

Overall Grade: B-

I'm a long-time admirer of Lanois, and obviously of Neil. I'm definitely looking forward to hearing the whole album. Meanwhile, great video, and cool song.
