Neil Young & Crazy Horse: New album due in October

In June, Neil Young and Crazy Horse returned with “Americana,” the group’s first album together since 2003’s “Greendale,” and their first with the full Crazy Horse line-up of Billy Talbot, Ralph Molina and Frank "Poncho" Sampedro since “Broken Arrow” in 1996.

Now, the band have announced a second album, “Psychedelic Pill,” will be released in October, the same month the group begins its full North American tour.

The new project was recorded right after “Americana” at Audio Casa Blanca.

A double-CD and triple-vinyl will be released due to the lengths of many of the songs, some of which were previewed in Crazy Horse's live performances earlier this month at Red Rocks.

In the spirit of “Americana”'s release, full length videos for each of the songs will be available and previewed.

A recommended high resolution 24/192 full fidelity version of the album “Psychedelic Pill” will be released on Blu-ray and will include all the videos. The low resolution iTunes downloads will also be accompanied by videos.

Neil and the band kick off a North American tour October 3 in Windsor, Ontario. Opening the first bunch of shows will be Los Lobos before Patti Smith takes over in late November.
