Young and Crazy Horse previously collaborated on the album ‘Colorado’ in 2019, and ‘Americana’ and ‘Psychedelic Pill’ in 2012. Now, the 75-year-old has confirmed on his personal website he has a handful of songs ready for a new LP, saying “recording with [Crazy Horse] will begin soon”.
“I have five songs ready for the next album, so I think over time the rest will come and we may start recording again soon,” he said.
However, Young also said he doesn’t plan to lock in tour dates “until I am sure the audience is safe”.
Elsewhere on his website, Young said he has handed in his sci-fi book Canary after working through edits with his editor. Speaking to Rolling Stone in 2018, Young said the book is about a man who “works for a power company and there’s corruption in the power company and he wants to expose it”.
NME gave ‘Colorado’ a four-star review upon its release, saying “[Young’s] commitment to a better way of doing things seeps through each of the ten songs”.
Last month, Young unveiled an extensive schedule of archival projects that he plans to release in the future.
