Neil Young To Take Fans On A Long, Strange Trip With Psychedelic Pill

Videos by American Songwriter

Remember reading about “Twisted Road,” that new Neil Young song about the power of rock and roll, which mentions Bob Dylan’s “Like A Rolling Stone” by name? It turns out that “Twisted Road” is one of the shorter excursions on Psychedelic Pill, the new double album from Young and Crazy Horse, due October 30.

The album, produced by Young with John Hanlon and Mark Humphreys, was recorded right after Americana, the all covers album released earlier this year, at Audio Casa Blanca studios. Americana marked the first time Young and Crazy Horse had recorded together since 2003’s Greendale.

Several tracks, including opener “Driftin’ Back” and closer “Walk Like A Giant,” extend past the ten minute mark, which is enough to get any hardcore Young fan drooling in anticipation of epic guitar solos and voluminous lyrics.

Similar to Americana, each song will get it’s own full-length video, which will be available for viewing and purchase online. A high-resolution 24/192 full-fidelity version Blu Ray version of the album will feature all of the videos. And of course, there’s vinyl — the album will be available as a three-LP collection.

Young and Crazy Horse will tour in support of Psychedelic Pill, and on October 20, Young will once again headline the Bridge School Benefit in Mountain View, California. Click here for details.
