Neil Young and Crazy Horse to record first album together in seven years

It follows the two camps reuniting for a show last year

Neil Young and Crazy Horse are getting back in the studio to record their first album together in seven years.

The two camps last worked together on 2012’s ‘Psychedelic Pill’ album, although they reunited last year to play a show together.

At the time, Young commented that the gig was “the beginning of another beautiful chapter” for the group. Now, the star has responded to a fan’s question about new material on his Archives website.

“Crazy Horse is about to enter the studio with 11 new ones,” Young concisely wrote. According to Consequence Of Sound, he later added: “We sincerely hope [fans] enjoy our new music when it is released this year, because we know we will enjoy making it.”

The legendary Canadian musician released his first album, ‘Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere’, in 1969. He has since released 23 records with Crazy Horse, including EPs and live albums. 

Meanwhile, Young launched his own subscription service and app last year that collates material from across his entire career.

The Neil Young Archives gives fans access to a complete back catalogue of audio and visual content. “This is a life’s work,” Young said of the project. “It will never be finished.” Hi-res streams of all his available recordings as well as a timeline filled with materials related to his music, films, videos, books, photographs, manuscripts, and press notes are included.
