Folk legend's collaborative LP is due out next month
Neil Young has revealed the tracklisting for his forthcoming new album ‘The Monsanto Years’.
The LP, which is Young’s 36th album and a collaborative effort featuring Willie Nelson’s sons, is due to be released on June 29.
Young will release a documentary film about the making of the record alongside the LP.
The record features protest songs against controversial agricultural company Monsanto. Monsanto is a company that Young has been publicly battling against for years. The singer boycotted Starbucks last year over the coffee company’s involvement with Monsanto in a lawsuit against the state of Vermont’s new requirements to label genetically modified ingredients.
The tracklisting for ‘The Monsanto Years’ is:
‘A New Day For Love’
‘People Want To Hear About Love’
‘A Rock Star Bucks A Coffee Shop’
‘Rules Of Change’
‘If I Don’t Know’
The folk singer will head on a tour of North America with Promise Of The Real during July, with support at select shows coming from Band Of Horses. The full live schedule can be found at Young’s official website.
Neil Young debuted his new band with a surprise intimate show in California last month. He was backed by the Nelsons on guitars, plus Promise of the Real bandmates Corey McCorkmick and Anthony Logerfo on bass and drums respectively.
The majority of the set was made up of new material, though Young did also perform a number of classic hits including a near-10 minute extended version of ‘Down By The River’ plus ‘Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere’ and ‘Walk On’.
