Neil Young revealed that he will record a new album with Crazy Horse. They are starting recording this week. It will be their first album since 2012.
The legendary singer-songwriter has previously already confirmed that he will be touring in Europe in July. He will be touring in Germany, Holland and Belgium alongside his band Promise Of The Real.
Previously, they were confirmed to play at British Summer Time, but he decided to move away from the event, due to the involvement of Barclaycard as a sponsor in the concert series. He will, however, play a stand-alone concert with Bob Dylan in Hyde Park on the same date.
The most recent addition to his European tour is his performance at Tinderbox.
In addition, the tour dates for Uncle Neil’s shows came from his website www.neilyoungarchives.com, the same goes for the news about the new album with Crazy Horse.
The news came as a response to a reader’s letter asking about his future recording plans.
Young later said that the eleven songs, that were written recently, are going to be recorded starting this week.
