Neil Young will play Liverpool’s Echo Arena on July 13 with his band Crazy Horse.
Last year’s Liverpool date was cancelled after guitarist Frank ‘Poncho’ Sampedro injured himself, however a new show will now take place this summer, following Neil Young and Crazy Horse’s huge outdoor show at London’s Hyde Park on Saturday July 12. In London they’ll be joined at Barclaycard British Summer Time by special guests The National, Tom Odell, Caitlin Rose, Phosphorescent and Flyte.
Meanwhile, Neil Young‘s next album will be released on the Third Man Records label owned by Jack White. Young has said that the record will be released in March and the record is described as: “An unheard collection of rediscovered songs from the past recorded on ancient electro mechanical technology captures and unleashes the essence of something that could have been gone forever…”.
Young previously told Rolling Stone that recording the album was “one of the lowest-tech experiences I’ve ever had”. A prospective tracklist of the album features Bob Dylan‘s ‘Blowin’ In The Wind’, Tim Hardin’s ‘Reason To Believe’, Gordon Lightfoot’s ‘Early Morning Rain’ and Ivory Joe Hunter’s ‘Since I Met You Baby’ as well as ‘Needle Of Death’, originally by the late Bert Jansch.
Neil Young is also set to release a brand new memoir this autumn. The book follows 2012’s Waging Heavy Peace and will interweave stories about the artist’s love of cars with recollections from his life. Publishers Blue Rider have called the book an “eclectic amalgam”.
