Neil Young streams The Monsanto Years ahead of release

Neil Young is streaming his new album, “The Monsanto Years”, in full ahead of its release on June 29 (June 30 in North America).

The project sees Young team with Promise Of The Real, featuring Willie Nelson’s sons Lukas and Micah Nelson.

The singer has been vocal in recent years about his opposition to Monsanto, a chemical company specializing in genetically modified seeds.

Last November, Young urged a boycott of Starbucks when they partnered with Monsanto in a lawsuit against the state of Vermont in an attempt to block a landmark law that requires genetically-modified ingredients be labeled on food packaging.

Young and Promise Of The Real will launch the “Rebel Content” tour on July 5 at Summerfest in Milwaukee.

Last week, Young issued a statement condemning the use of one of his songs, “Rocking In The Free World”, in the launch of a US Presidential campaign by Republican candidate Donald Trump.

NOTE: Access to the audio premiere is restricted in some territories at source, beyond hennemusic’s control; as a result, we have secured an additional source as a backup for fans to hear the record.
