Neil Young and Crazy Horse Announce New Album Psychedelic Pill
As we’ve previously reported, Neil Young’s most recent tour with Crazy Horse found the rocker and his partners in guitar squall unveiling a clutch of new songs. In fact, the band seemed so jazzed about trotting out new tunes that they mostly abstained from playing anything off this year’s covers album, Americana.
According to an announcement on Neil Young’s official website, a new studio album from Crazy Horse, including tracks that made this month’s live setlist, will be released in October. It’s called Psychedelic Pill, and it will be Crazy Horse’s first album of originals since 2003’s rock opera Greendale.
The complete post on neilyoung.com promises a multimedia extravaganza:
“Psychedelic Pill will be released in October. It was recorded right after Americana at Audio Casa Blanca. A double-CD and triple-vinyl will be released because of the lengths of many of the songs, some of which were previewed in Crazy Horse's live performances earlier this month. In the spirit of Americana's release, full length videos for each of the songs will be available and previewed. A recommended high resolution 24/192 full fidelity version of the album Psychedelic Pill will be released on Blu-ray and will include all the videos. The low resolution iTunes downloads will also be accompanied by videos.”
The next leg of Crazy Horse’s North American tour will kick off on September 22 at Farm Aid 2012 and continue through early December. And who knows: maybe the boys will be playing songs off the NEXT next album.
