The veteran is bringing out the long-awaited 'Toast' instead of his expansive retrospective

Trending Now

Neil Young has delayed the release of his expansive “The Archives Vol. 1” once again – but is releasing new material from his vaults instead.

“Archives”, scheduled to be released on January 27 2009, has been put back until April or May next year, while “Toast”, an album with Crazy Horse, will be released in its place.

Recorded seven years ago, the album, which will be released in 5.1 stereo, features some songs that made it on to 2001’s “Are You Passionate?”, including “Goin’ Home”, alongside unreleased work.

Speaking to Rolling Stone about the release, Young said: “It’s a mind-blowing record, and I don’t think it’s a commercial record, but it’s great rock and roll, very moody, kind of jazzy.

“It was recorded in the same place where Coltrane was recorded, so there’s a lot of heavy stuff in there. All of the live ambience for everything was all recorded, so the whole thing has got a massive sound about it.”
