Front Row on BBC Radio – Neil takes the dark side of Americana

Neil Young: Depth, darkness and despair in new album

For over four decades Neil Young has been one of the great stalwarts of modern music.

He’s an artist who is as likely to confound as delight his fans, switching regularly between delicate acoustic ballads and noisy electric rock.

For his latest album Americana – on which he reunites with his old band Crazy Horse – he has tackled old American folk songs.

In a rare interview with Front Row presenter John Wilson, Neil Young discussed the dark and violent themes behind his latest work.

The full interview can be heard in a special edition of Front Row on BBC Radio 4 at 7.15pm on Friday 8 June.

Go to for a 4:31 minute audio of the interview on BBC.

I\\\'m really turned on by the new music I\\\'m making now, back with Crazy Horse. Today, even as I\\\'m talking, the songs are running through my head. I\\\'m excited. I think everything I\\\'ve done is valid or else I wouldn\\\'t have released it, but I do realize the last three albums have been a certain way. I know I\\\'ve gotten a lot of bad publicity for them. Somehow I feel like I\\\'ve surfaced out of some kind of murk. And the proof will be in my next album.
