Any Neil Young fans unhappy about his current taste in music can seek solace in the fact that an album (or maybe even two albums) with Crazy Horse is in the pipeline. Yes, the days of Young touring with Sonic Youth may be over, but at least he may be about to rediscover some of the spit and fire of his older work if this story turns out to be true.
The story first surfaced on Young’s fansite Thrasher’s Wheat, which caused Rolling Stone to get in touch with the singer’s people. “It’s looking good,” was the hopeful response the legendary rock mag received, which was backed up by a simple post from Crazy Horse drummer Ralph Molina. “Yes,” he replied, to questions over whether the news was true.
This will be the first record Young has made with Crazy Horse since the uneven Greendale in 2003, closing an unprecedented gap of nearly 10 years between collaborations. Keep an eye on Thrasher’s Wheat for further updates on the album—the site claims a possible spring release may be in store for it.
