Neil Young and Crazy Horse to Release New Album on June 5th

Neil Young and Crazy Horse will release a new album titled Americana on June 5, 2012. The album marks the first album from Neil Young & Crazy Horse in nearly nine years.

Americana is a collection of classic, American folk songs. Young has written brief historical details about the songs on the album that can be found here.

The following statement explaining the album in further detail was released in a press release:

What ties these songs together is the fact that while they may represent an America that may no longer exist, the emotions and scenarios behind these songs still resonate with what’s going on in the country today with equal, if not greater impact nearly 200 years later. The lyrics reflect the same concerns and are still remarkably meaningful to a society going through economic and cultural upheaval, especially during an election year. They are just as poignant and powerful today as the day they were written.

The track-listing is as follows:

Oh Susannah
Tom Dooley
Gallows Pole
Get A Job
Travel On
High Flyin’ Bird
She’ll Be Comin ‘Round The Mountain
This Land Is Your Land
Wayfarin’ Stranger
God Save The Queen
