Neil Young will be among the guests appearing on CBS-TV’s The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Thursday, May 26.
Young is gearing up for the June 17 release of a new live album called “Earth.”
The set mixes 2015 concert readings with the Promise Of The Real band – featuring Willie Nelson’s sons Micah and Lukas – alongside ambient elements like car horns, insects and animal sounds.
“Ninety-eight uninterrupted minutes long, Earth flows as a collection of 13 songs from throughout my life, songs I have written about living here on our planet together,” explains Young. “Our animal kingdom is well represented in the audience as well, and the animals, insects, birds and mammals actually take over the performances of the songs at times.”
The project offers 12 tracks from Young’s career and “I Won’t Quit”, an unreleased tune the rocker debuted at Farm Aid 30 in Chicago, IL last September.
