TONIGHT: New Neil Young Track Release From "The Times" EP

"The Times They Are A Changin' " - Bob Dyan cover by Neil Young
A new Neil Young track will be streamed exclusively on or on the Neil Young Archives mobile app @ 9 PM PT.

In July, Neil Young announced a new EP titled "The Times" was Coming Soon".

Here is the cover for "The Times" by Neil Young (see above). 
While no track list has been announced as of yet, it will include "Lookin' For A Leader" and presumably Neil Young's recent cover of Bob Dylan's "The Times They Are A-Changin'" from the PORCH EPISODE.

"The Times" EP by Neil Young - RELEASE DATE: 9/18/2020

Labels: ,

Look forward to the EP...

"Stand up for what you believe
Resist the Powers that be.
Preserve the land and save the seas
For the children of destiny:
The children of you and me."


"And we're singing of the times when the sun will always shine.
Armored cars and tanks will fade away.
The people will be one, the fighting will be done,
and all the little children they can play."

~Tommy Sands

I was listening to this today,great album ,a great so g from a master composer songwriter. Doesn't get much better than this.👍

A remarkably tender reading of a masterwork of lyric and music. The lyrics written so long ago resonate today with the same wisdom and warning. We are at a crossroads, and I admire Neil for his intentions to communicate through song, what he feels in his heart.

Just finished reading the new letters on NYA and Neil mentions a album coming out in 2021 called Noise and Flowers with Promise of the Real. This is the first I’ve heard about this. Maybe I missed something along the way. It appears to be material from the last tour with POTR after Elliot Roberts passed away. Sounds like it could be something special.

Thanks Dan for the information about Noise and Flowers... Maybe a NY+POTR live recording with overdubs of flowers noises ??? After Earth and animals noises... Well, add it to the hundred releases expected in 2021 :-)
By the way, NY said in a other letter that Mirror Ball live is now MAYBE for 2021...
Wait and see...

Pre-order for The Times EP has gone live on Amazon, with something that looks suspiciously like a track list in the description.

I'm psyched for this: for a long time, I've felt that Campaigner and Ohio are two songs that belong side by side with each other.

Also, thanks to Dan for info on the intriguing "Noise and Flowers". I know not everyone shares this view, but POtR is fine with me. I like the different instruments and texture they add to Neil's songs, and The Visitor is, imho, a very underrated, special album. Not to mention the Earth album: it's easy to knock the concept, but harder to argue with the results.

Hopefully we might have the opportunity to get this on vinyl as it’s only a available on CD right now on Amazon.

...... and yes Ian, The Visitor is indeed a gem, and I’ll take all the POTR with Neil I can get. Those youngsters really put a fire under our beloved Uncle Neil.

Peace..... & VOTE 🙏

@Dan, I wonder about the vinyl, too. EP, in its original sense, means an "extended play" vinyl that is actually a different format from 33&1/3 LP. Back in the day, they were typically pressed on 7-inch 45rpm discs (thanks, Wiki, for confirming my suspicions). Given how expensive new vinyl is these days, I wonder about the economics of pressing a release for a shorter recording.

About The Visitor, I seem to remember some very positive responses at the time, so I'm a little disappointed with the lukewarm consensus that seems to have developed since. I know it's not the Horse, but I think some folks are missing trees for wood there. And my suspicion is that not only did the Real inspire Uncle Neil, but also that he was able to bring in songs and subject matter that he might not have felt were right for the Horse.

On Colorado, for instance, the familiar ecological and social themes are there, but couched a little differently and with less overt topical rhetoric than many of the POTR songs. There are no direct allusions to POTUS, and when Neil delivers lines like "you might say I'm an old white guy..." or "... a few bricks short of a load", it feels like he's leaving room to validate the feelings of band mates who may not entirely share his convictions. It's a fair approach, but one which does perhaps cast some light on why Horse collaborations have been sparing in the last decade or so.
