Neil Young will release a new album, entitled EARTH, on June 17thvia Reprise Records. The album features performances of songs from a range of Young's albums,including last year's The Monsanto Years, 1990's Ragged Glory, and 1970's After the Gold Rush.The audio was captured during Young's 2015 tour with The Promise of the Real, fronted by LukasNelson (vocals/guitar) and Micah Nelson (guitar, vocals) - Willie Nelson's sons. The tour includedYoung performing solo and with the band for a full electric show.
A new take on some of Young's most beloved songs, EARTH features the live recordings, along withadded musical overdubs, as well as sounds of the earth, such as city sounds like car horns, soundsof insects, and animal sounds from bears, birds, crickets, bees, horses, cows - creating a verystrange, yet beautiful atmosphere.
"Ninety-eight uninterrupted minutes long, EARTH flows as a collection of 13 songs from throughoutmy life, songs I have written about living here on our planet together," says Young. "Our animalkingdom is well represented in the audience as well, and the animals, insects, birds, and mammalsactually take over the performances of the songs at times."

Not a criticism but having seen Neil and PotR live this year, the latter sounds very different in their backing here than on the Monsanto Years album and live, whilst in some of the tracks they seem to revert to more of a Crazy Horse style role.
To say that Neil doesn't break new ground would be foolish, he does like dipping his toe occasionally in the odd different genre.
But with EARTH he breaks new ground. When I heard that there would be animal noises on the new album my heart did sink, but it works! A touch of genius. Similar in a way to when Jean-Michel Jarre sampled voices as instruments on Zoolook. My dogs found it more of a problem than me.
I highly recommend this superb addition to the the Neil Young canon!
Neil Young continues to innovate and I cannot wait to see him live in Lucca.
Buy it you will enjoy the experience.
