EARTH, new Young’s Neil Album complete with animal sounds

 “We made a live record and every creature on the planet seemed to show up,” Neil Young writes of 98-minute uninterrupted album

Neil Young’s upcoming album Earth (in stores June 17th) is one of the most unconventional releases in his long catalog, according to Rolling Stone.

On May 6th, Young will unveil Earth at the Natural History Museum Los Angles County’s First Fridays series.

The album features 11 songs from his 2015 tour with Promise of the Real mixed with sounds of the Earth.

“Our animal kingdom is well represented in the audience,” Young said in a statement. “And the animals, insects, birds, and mammals actually take over the performances of the songs at times.”

Critic says Neil Young shows how not to write a protest song

Neil Young’s new album, “The Monsanto Years,” aims to shine a light on the chemical company’s manipulation of our food supply, but the songs are so awful that no one is likely to listen.

A new music review of Neil Young’s new album “The Monsanto Years’ that appeared Friday, June 26 in the New York Daily News says the songs leave on wondering why  he didn’t choose a quicker, clearer and simpler way to get his message across. Hadn’t he thought of writing an op-ed?

The new album, the author writes, sinks decent riffs and an earnest message in unlistenably didactic lyrics.

Quoting the article: “The band supporting Young has some appeal. The 69-year-old star worked with musicians decades his junior: Lukas and Micah Nelson, the guitar-playing sons of Willie Nelson. They brought in some of their young friends from their band Promise of the Real.

“Even so, no melody or chord progression can survive lyrics like “When the people of Vermont voted to label food with GMO/so they could find out what was in it/Monsanto and Starbucks sued the state of Vermont to overturn the people’s will.”

Oh, absolutely. I read a review of my record and someone said, \"She sounds like Lucinda Williams fronting Crazy Horse.\" I thought, wow, I never really thought that Neil Young was a big influence, but I guess in some way he\'s a subconscious one. It\'s a huge compliment. Not only is he a great musician and artist, but I have a lot of respect for the way he leads his life and takes a stand on things that are personally important to him.
