Neil Young announces new album and “already great” single – Listen

We’ll be the judge of that. Lol, as the kids say.  Pitchfork reports: “Neil Young has once again teamed up with his backing band the Promise of the Real (which features Willie Nelson’s son Lukas). Their new album is called The Visitor, and it’s out December 1 via Reprise. It features a new song called “Already Great.” Listen to it below. Neil and Promise of the Real worked together on the 2016 album EARTH and the political 2015 album The Monsanto Years. Earlier this year, Young and Promise of the Real also released a one-off single called “Children of Destiny.” The song preached an anti-Trump message: “Stand up for what you believe/Resist the powers that be.” Oh, and in other news he’s also selling his model train collection which is massive it seems.

The Visitor:

01 Already Great
02 Fly By Night Deal
03 Almost Always
04 Stand Tall
05 Change of Heart
06 Carnival
07 Diggin’ a Hole
08 Children of Destiny
09 When Bad Got Good
10 Forever

  1. Let’s hope it’s not latest sloppy release form the great man – underwhelmed by everything from the last 10 years – POTR not a fan.
