Unveils "I Won't Quit" in solidarity with farmers and animal rights

Neil Young unveiled a new song at Farm Aid’s thirtieth anniversary concert this weekend (September 19). Performing with Promise Of The Real, Young debuted ‘I Won’t Quit’, a tirade against corporate greed and the treatment of farmers and animals.
