New album cover “American Gothic” inspired

neil-young-the-monsanto-yearsNeil Young has just revealed the track list and album cover for his next album, The Monsanto Years, due out June 29.

The album is a collaboration with Promise of the Real, a band that includes Willie Nelson‘s sons Lukas and Micah.

According to Brian Ives, writing at Radio.com, here’s the tracklist for The Monsanto Years.

Neil Young The Monsanto Years Tracklist

1. A New Day For Love
2. Wolf Moon
3. People Want To Hear About Love
4. Big Box
5. A Rock Star Bucks A Coffee Shop
6. Workin’ Man
7. Rules Of Change
8. Monsanto Years
9. If I Don’t Know

The album cover  is a painting of Young with a woman who looks to be his current paramour, Daryl Hannah, posed in a tribute to “American Gothic.”

And it’s unlikely that you’ll hear the album on the sound system at your local Starbucks. That’s because the first single, “A Rock Star Bucks a Coffee Shop” is a bit critical of the chain.  You can watch the video at Democracy Now; the song includes lyrics like “Yeah, I want a cup of coffee but I don’t want the GMOs/ I’d like to start my day off, without helping Monsanto” (tip: to see the clip, fast forward to about 26:30 into the video).

Young and Promise of the Real kick off a U.S. tour July 5 at the Milwaukee Summerfest. See the tour dates Rebel Content Tour

It confuses me to hear people shouting at us that musicians should just shu…t up and entertain. Where the hell did that lame-ass idea come from? Music was, is and always will be about social condition and cause and change. Music speaks for the oppressed and downtrodden. Music launches revolution. Woody Guthrie and Hank Williams and Bob Dylan and Joan Baez and Johnny Cash and Joni Mitchell and Willie Nelson and John Lennon and Eddie Vedder and Neil Young and all the giants of the art know this. What the fuck kind of music and musicians are these boneheads actually listening to?
