Neil Young streams third episode of Fireside Sessions home concert series

Neil Young is streaming the third episode in his new home concert series, “Fireside Sessions.”

Filmed by his wife, actor/director Daryl Hannah, at the couple’s home in the Rockies, the latest video opens with, as Rolling Stone notes, an acoustic take on “New Mama” from 1975’s “Tonight’s The Night”, before the rocker heads indoors to the piano for “See The Sky About To Rain” from 1974’s “On The Beach.”

Young returns to the acoustic guitar for his Buffalo Springfield classic, “I Am A Child”, before delivering the first-ever piano performance of “Throw Your Hatred Down”, from his 1995 album with Pearl Jam, “Mirror Ball”; “World On A String” is followed by the CSNY fave, “Helpless” before Young closes the episode outside alongside a setting sun with the rarity, “Already One”, from 1978’s “Comes A Time”, in just the second time he’s played the tune since 2009 and just the fifth time since the Seventies.

Young recently launched the video series from isolation during the coronavirus pandemic, where he performs a number of classic and rare tracks for fans.

Young and Crazy Horse recently debuted a new video for “Shut It Down”, a track from their 2019 album, “Colorado.”

The tune has been rebranded “Shut It Down 2020” for the clip - directed by Young and Hannah – which mixes footage of the band recording the song last year alongside scenes of the current global pandemic: people in masks, health care professionals, and empty streets in cities around the world.
