There are 11 new songs, ranging from 3 minutes to 14 minutes of music each, which: "We believe we have a great Crazy Horse album, one to stand alongside ‘Everybody Know’s this is Nowhere’, ‘Rust Never Sleeps’, Sleeps With Angels’, ‘Psychedelic Pill’ and all the others."

Neil Young also indicates that a tour is in the works.

The studio sessions mark the first new album with Crazy Horse in 7 years since the release of Psychedelic Pill. As previously noted, Nils Lofgren has joined the sessions with Ralph Molina and Billy Talbot. Frank "Poncho" Sampedro, has stated that he is "retired" per a recent interview with Uncut Magazine.

New Crazy Horse: great!!!

Homegrown, Alchemy, Ragged Glory II probably all pushed back till 2020 tho.

They should call it Playback. Seems somehow fitting with Nils back aboard...

Regardless of the pushback on earlier recordings I’m ready for new CRAZY HORSE.
Thanks Neil.

With Nil's instrumental versatility I can hear why Neil says "this album stands as one of the most diverse albums I have ever made." I wonder if Nils brought his accordion.

Innaresting that the four albums Neil name checked are ‘Everybody Know’s this is Nowhere’, ‘Rust Never Sleeps’, Sleeps With Angels’, ‘Psychedelic Pill’ for this album to stand alongside. I can hear the feedback in his country rock, and the hypnotic trip rock coming on now!

And with a cryptic comment by Amy L. I think there will be some Trump roasting going on throughout the album. Early Fall release, perfect golden foliage time for a NY&CH album debut concert at the Telluride Band shell dontcha think?

Wow I can't wait! I hope it's truly a return to form! Psych Pill was the last NY album I really liked and would love to have more of the good stuff!

Can't wait to hear the new album, hopefully some indoor shows in Europe

Diverse is the word. I do hope and feel the new songs will all be different and the still have the Horse vibe. So looking forward.

I can reveal the new album will be called 'Music Trumps Politics'.

At 5/04/2019 08:29:00 PM, Blogger thrasher said...

@ Mr_Beagle - thanks for sharing the rumor. while plausible, is there anything you can share which might give us a reason to believe your "reveal" ?

At 5/06/2019 10:58:00 AM, Blogger Mr_Beagle said...

The title is a play on the fact that President Trump has been using Neil's music without permission.

At 5/06/2019 08:19:00 PM, Blogger thrasher said...

@ Mr_Beagle - ok, got that. what we were getting at was, is this just wishful thinking? Or something solid? capeche?

At 5/07/2019 04:02:00 AM, Blogger Mr_Beagle said...

Just me trying to come up with a clever title.
