Neil Young is recording a new album with Crazy Horse.
The ‘Rockin’ in the Free World’ hitmaker is once again teaming up with the garage rock band, which will be the first time they’ve worked together since 2004.
News of their latest collaboration came following a post on Young’s fansite Thrasher’s Wheat, which said the 69-year-old rocker had told fans about it over the weekend at the Slamdance Film Festival in Park City, Utah.
Multiple fans subsequently posted on Crazy Horse drummer Ralph Molina’s Facebook wall to ask if the news was true, to which he replied: ”Yes!”
Young’s representative also told Rolling Stone: ”It’s looking good.”
Young began playing with the garage rock band in 1968 and they back him on many of his albums, including ‘Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere’, ‘Zuma’, ‘Rust Never Sleeps’ and ‘Ragged Glory’.
in 2008, Young was asked if he had any desire to work with Crazy Horse again and he said: ”I’m not thinking about that right now. We’ll just see what happens. Something might happen. You never know. Or something else we don’t even know about could happen, and that would be really good, rather than go back. But if the vibe’s right to go back and grab what’s back there and yank it into the future, that’s a big job.”
