Neil Young announces release date for 'Homegrown' + four others albums

News 12/03/2020

Neil Young has announced that his 45-year-long-awaited 'Homegrown' album will hit the stores this 18th April.

Although the album was completed in 1975, the musician decided it was too personal for him to deal with at the time, so he declined to release the album.

"Homegrown vinyl in the house right now. Finished records!" he shared the news on his website. "Homegrown is all analogue! The purest sound. Hear the vinyl. Get a nice phonograph player. This is the record to do that on! My first ever narration with Ben' Longgrain' Keith and live sound effects. Some beautiful music and fun rocking' songs as well. This is the one that got away. I am stoked to share this with you."

Young also announced a live album, Return to Greendale, will be released on 19th June. The live LP features him and Crazy Horse performing the 2003's rock opera, Greendale. Next up is Archives Volume 2 on 24th July and a 1990 live Crazy Horse recording, Rust Bucket, on 16th October.

Lastly, Young Shakespear, a solo show from 1971, will be released near the end of the year on 27th November.
