Scroll down to watch the video for 'Oh Susannah', the first single to be taken from Neil Young And Crazy Horse's new album, 'Americana'.

'Oh Susannah' is available now, digitally, and 'Americana' is released on June 4. Recorded at Audio Casa Blanca studios in January, the record is Young's first with Crazy Horse since 2003 and the first album with the full Crazy Horse line-up of Billy Talbot, Ralph Molina and Frank Sampedro since 1996's 'Broken Arrow'.

The record has been produced by Neil Young and John Hanlon and is entirely comprised of new versions of classic American folk songs, including 'Clementine', 'Gallow's Pole' and 'She'll Be Comin' Round The Mountain'.

Of his song choices, Young has said: "They represent an America that may no longer exist. The emotions and scenarios behind these songs still resonate with what's going on in the country today with equal, if not greater impact nearly 200 years later. The lyrics reflect the same concerns and are still remarkably meaningful to a society going through economic and cultural upheaval, especially during an election year. They are just as poignant and powerful today as the day they were written."

The tracklisting for 'Americana' is as follows:

'Oh Susannah'
'Clementine?'
'Tom Dooley'
'?Gallows Pole?'
'Get A Job?'
'Travel On?'
'High Flyin' Bird?'
'She'll Be Comin' Round The Mountain'
'This Land Is Your Land?'
'Wayfarin' Stranger?'
'God Save The Queen'
