Neil Young has released the video for "Oh Susannah," a track from his latest Crazy Horse backed album, Americana.
The simple vid features footage of a family gathered around their father as he picks a banjo and plays a tune for the glum group.
Young's latest LP contains 11 tracks of standard folk tunes—including "This Land Is Your Land," "Gallows Pole," "Tom Dooley" and "Clementine"—rendered in the straight ahead rocking style of Crazy Horse.
"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 said of the album in a press release.
Americana, co-produced by Young, is due June 5 via Reprise Records.
