Neil Young featured on new Bachman song “Little Girl Lost”

Bachman Heavy BluesWeeks after announcing his new “Heavy Blues” Randy Bachman has unveiled the title track — a guitar-heavy number that lives up to its name with assistance from special guest Peter Frampton, according to Ultimate Classic Rock.

The song list includes Neil Young featured on song 4 “Little Lost Girl.”

UCR writer Jeff Giles says Bachman’s new project began with a conversation between Bachman and his friend Neil Young, who spurred him to dig deeper for his next solo effort.

Bachman said:  “He said, ‘Take some advice. Don’t do the same old crap and call it something new.’ I said, ‘What do you mean?’ He said, ‘Don’t do the same thing and say it’s a new album … Stop, get out of the box, do something fearless, be fierce, be ferocious, reinvent yourself.’ And I go, ‘OK, great advice.’”.

In addition to Frampton and Young, Bachman’s joined on ‘Heavy Blues’ by Joe Bonamassa and Robert Randolph, and makes use of an archival performance from the late Jeff Healey. The album isn’t scheduled to arrive in U.S. stores until April 15, but it’s available for pre-order now.

Young among performers on upcoming Bachman album

Neil Young and Randy BachmanNeil Young will be among the guest musicians playing on Randy Bachman’s next album, titled “Heavy Blues” and due for release on April 15, 2015.

“Do something fearless, be fierce, be ferocious, reinvent yourself,” Young is said to have told Bachman.

According to Ultimate Classic Rock, the album will include a small core combo: bassist Anna Ruddick and drummer Dale Anne Brendan, and will reflect  the band’s “love of classic ’60s blues rock” and promises “a blistering sound” as well as “a fierce and fearless collection of Bachman originals.”

Bachman enlisted a group of guest guitarists for the tracks: along with his own signature playing, ‘Heavy Blues’ features solos from Neil Young, Joe Bonamassa and Robert Randolph, as well as a contribution from the late Jeff Healey, who passed away in 2008 at the age of 41.

Bachman credits Young with helping push him toward making the leap he took for ‘Heavy Blues,’ recalling a conversation between the two in which Young cajoled him to try something different. “He said, ‘Take some advice. Don’t do the same old crap and call it something new.’ I said, ‘What do you mean?’ He said, ‘Don’t do the same thing and say it’s a new album … Stop, get out of the box, do something fearless, be fierce, be ferocious, reinvent yourself.’ And I go, ‘OK, great advice.’”
