Neil Young & Crazy Horse To Release New Album
Neil Young & Crazy Horse will have a new album out on June 5.
It’s called Americana and features reinterpretations of classic American folk songs such as Oh Susanna, This Land Is Your Land, Tom Dooley and Clementine.
There is also a version of Gallows Pole, which is thought to go back centuries and have its origins outside of America. However, Leadbelly did record The Gallis Pole in the 1930s and this made it popular to succeeding generations, inspiring Led Zeppelin’s rendition on Led Zeppelin III.
Says Young on the choice of songs: “They are just as poignant and powerful today as the day they were written. They’re songs we all know from kindergarden, but Crazy Horse has rearranged them, and they now belong to us”.
