The long-mooted release of Neil Young’s shelved 1974/75 acoustic album Homegrown has finally been confirmed for Record Store Day 2020 (April 18).

Young has been a longtime supporter of Record Store Day, using it to soft-launch releases such as Roxy: Tonight’s The Night Live in 2018. A wider release of Homegrown is expected in the coming months.
