Neil Young debuted a new song in a Boston club on Tuesday while sitting in with wife Pegi’s backing band during their show, and video of the performance has surfaced.
Rolling Stone reports the music icon surprised many at the 300-capacity Johnny D's in Somerville, Massachusetts, when he debuted a new song, apparently titled "Drive My Car."
Pegi’s band, the Survivors, features veterans of past Neil Young tours, including Rock and Roll Hall of Fame keyboardist Spooner Oldham and bassist Rick Rosas.
Rolling Stone describes the new song as “very similar in tone and content to material on Fork in the Road, Young's 2009 LP devoted almost entirely devoted to songs about his electric car project.”
This week, Neil announced Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young as headliners for his 27th annual Bridge School Benefit Concerts.
Young organizes the annual acoustic-based shows, which raise funds for the Bridge School, a facility that develops and uses advanced technologies to aid in the instruction of children with disabilities; it was founded in 1986 by Pegi Young and Jim Forderer, with help from Dr. Marilyn Buzolich. The first benefit concert, in 1986, raised the money necessary to start the school, which opened in ’87.
The 2013 event takes place on October 26 and 27 at the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, California.
Tickets go on sale Friday, September 13th at 10am at Livenation.com, the Shoreline Amphitheatre box office, all Ticketmaster outlets, or by calling (800) 745-3000.
