Neil Young is expected to release a new album on June 16, 2015.

According to a report on Rolling Stone, Young’s latest – titled The Monsanto Years – has been recorded with Promise Of The Real, featuring Willie Nelson’s sons Lukas and Micah.

Young and his latest band debuted new material at a small club gig in San Luis Obispo, California on Thursday, April 16.


Speaking about Young to Uncut last year, Lukas Nelson said, “Neil’s always got so much going on. Even if he looks like he’s just standing there, his mind is working. To us, he’s like Yoda, or something. Dad’s like that, too. Those guys. it’s in their make-up. I have no doubt Neil’s gonna be rocking for a long time to come. Dad’s 81 and he’s still going. They’re cut from the same cloth, and Neil admires my dad for that very reason, too.”
