The Neil Young Thread

Post by Mithaearon » Wed Jan 14, 2009 3:43 am

I am a big Neil Young fan so I thought I would start a thread to discuss (probably with just myself :P) any news, live performances and all that jazz relating to Neil Young.

He has just released a new song, Fork in the Road, taken from his forth coming album, also called Fork in the Road. You can check out the video here:

Neil Young readies new album for release

Taken from NME
Neil Young as set to release a new album called 'Fork In The Road' in the spring.

The star, who is currently on tour in Australia and New Zealand, has uploaded the title track on his website, Neilyoung.com.

The news of the album's imminent release means that the long-awaited 'Archives Vol 1' project, which was reportedly due for release in February, now appears to have been put back indefinitely.

Young's label Warners have previously confirmed that the collection, which focuses on the first phase of the Canadian guitar legend's career, is complete and ready to go.

However it is now thought that Young will focus on his new material first, getting it out before his rumoured appearance at this summer's Glastonbury festival.

Young is widely thought to be headlining the Friday of the event on the Pyramid Stage (June 26), although this has yet to be officially confirmed by organisers.

Young previewed many of the songs tipped for inclusion on 'Fork In The Road' on his North American tour last winter, including 'Cough Up the Bucks', 'Fuel Line', 'Hit The Road' and 'Get Around'.

Neil Young and Pearl Jam had a healthy working relationship for a while there. I thought it was kind of a cool cross-over. What do you think? Good? Bad? Take it or leave it?

Being a big Neil Young fan I love it. Pearl Jam and NY work so well together. Mirror Ball is a great album of his. I love the studio chatter at teh start and end of the songs. ANd Pearl Jams offshot EP from that recording session Merkin Ball is wicked too. Live they are amazing together. So yes to Neil Young!

Taken From Music Radar:
Neil Young says 'Cough Up The Bucks' on new album

Earlier this year, we got a not-so-subtle taste of Neil Young's upcoming album Fork In The Road. The video of the title track had Young singing while waving around an apple with earphones stuck in it.

Young has now released not one but two additional videos from the new record, and they're a study in contrasts both visually and musically.

Cough Up The Bucks
The first, called Cough Up The Bucks, is a comical look at a corporate raider in the last throes. Young, dressed in power suit and riding in the back of a ridiculously long stretch limo, reads the Wall Street Journal while singing/talking into his Blackberry and checking stock reports on his laptop.

"Where did all the money go/ where did all the cash flow/ cough up the bucks, cough up the bucks," Young demands over a throbbing, distorted guitar-driven beat.

Check out the video on Neil Young's MySpace page here. (It's not on YouTube yet,)

Light A Candle
On a different note entirely, the acoustic ballad Light A Candle is as beautiful and elegiac as anything Neil Young has ever done before. The video features Young's wife, Pegi, holding a candle in the window of the RV behind him as he sings, "Instead of cursing the darkness/ light a candle for where we're going/ there's something ahead worth looking for."

You can see this video at Young's MySpace page here.

If these songs are indications of the depth and range of Fork In The Road (due 7 April), we can't wait to hear the fiished set.

Neil Young is one of the greatest and most influential figures in guitar music. He's done the folk thing, he's done the noisy-grungy thing, and for the most part of his career he's been as uncompromising as any grunge artist could strive to be. So yeah, I do agree with those who call him a Godfather of grunge, with Pearl Jam modelling their whole mid-nineties sound after his music as being only one example of Young's influence on the grunge scene. The Dead Man soundtrack is awesome, so is Harvest, and anybody who considers himself a serious music fan should give a listen to Buffalo Springfield or Young's works with Crosby, Stills & Nash. A true legend.
