Neil Young shares new song ‘Peace Trail’, back catalogue returns to streaming services

It's the title track from his upcoming album 'Peace Trail'

Neil Young has shared a new song ‘Peace Trail’ from his upcoming album of the same name.

Originally set for release on December 2, ‘Peace Trail’ has now been pushed back for a December 9 release. The album was recorded at Rick Rubin’s Shangri La Studios in Malibu.

Earlier this year (September 20), Neil Young released a new video for ‘Indian Givers‘, which included footage from the protests surrounding the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline. You can listen to ‘Peace Trail’ below.


Meanwhile, Neil Young has put his entire back catalogue onto major streaming services, including Spotify and Apple Music.

Young removed his music from streaming services last summer after arguing that the sound quality was not up to his standards.

“It’s not because of the money, although my share (like all the other artists) was dramatically reduced by bad deals made without my consent…” he wrote on Facebook at the time.

“It’s about sound quality. I don’t need my music to be devalued by the worst quality in the history of broadcasting or any other form of distribution. I don’t feel right allowing this to be sold to my fans. It’s bad for my music.” Young’s albums will be available to stream on Spotify and Apple Music from midnight on November 4.
