Neil Young has confirmed that his new album with Crazy Horse, titled Americana, is set for release on June 5.
The album is comprised of traditional American folk songs including "This Land Is Your Land," "Gallows Pole," "Tom Dooley" and "Clementine," and was co-produced by Young.
"What ties these songs together is the fact that while they may represent an America that may no longer exist, the emotions and scenarios behind these songs still resonate with what's going on in the country today with equal, if not greater impact nearly 200 years later," Young says of the album in a press release.
"The lyrics reflect the same concerns and are still remarkably meaningful to a society going through economic and cultural upheaval, especially during an election year. They are just as poignant and powerful today as the day they were written."
Americana track list:
"Get A Job"
"High Flyin' Bird"
"She'll Be Comin 'Round The Mountain"
"This Land Is Your Land"
"God Save The Queen"
