Neil Young is set to release a new album with his band Crazy Horse.
As well as recently finishing work on their first joint album since 2003’s ‘Greendale’, Young has revealed that they are currently at work on a further record. Young revealed the news over the weekend, according to a report from Music News. No release date for either record has been announced.
Canadian singer songwriter Young, who released his last solo album ‘Le Noise’ in 2010, recently told MTV News that there were no contemporary musical “geniuses”.
He said: “I’m finding that I have a little bit of trouble with the quality of the sound of music today. I don’t like it. It just makes me angry. Not the quality of the music, but we’re in the 21st century and we have the worst sound that we’ve ever had. It’s worse than a 78 [rpm record]. Where are our geniuses? What happened?”
Young made sure to say that though he hated the way modern music was recorded, he did not hate the new bands who made it, and talked up Mumford And Sons and My Morning Jacket as two of his favourite new bands.
He said: “Mumford And Sons and My Morning Jacket are great bands. I love them both and I know them well. I feel good about saying that.”
