A Rock Star Bucks A Coffee Shop

MON-SAN-TO

neil-young-lukas-nelson-promise-of-the-real-a-rock-star-bucks-a-coffee-shop-video-750x422Official Music Video for “A Rock Star Bucks A Coffee Shop” by Neil Young + Promise Of The Real from the upcoming New album ‘The Monsanto Years’ , available on June 29th.

Judge for yourself. As always, the whistling is nice. 

 

 

Unofficial lyrics

If you don’t like a rock star bucks a coffee shop
Well you better change your station cause that ain’t all that we got
Yeah, I want a cup of coffee but I don’t want a GMO
I like to start my day off without helping Monsanto
Monsanto, let our farmers grow What they wanna grow
From the fields of Nebraska to the banks of the Ohio
Farmers won’t be free to grow what they wanna grow
If corporate control takes over the American farm
With fascist politicians and chemical giants walking arm in arm
Monsanto, let our farmers grow What they wanna grow
When the people of Vermont voted to label our food with GMOs
So that they could find out what was in what the farmer grows
Monsanto and Starbucks grew the Grocery Manufacturers Alliance
It sued the state of Vermont to overturn the people’s will
Monsanto — and Starbucks — others want to know
What they feed their children
Monsanto, let our farmers grow What they wanna grow

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

Audio of Neil at SLO Brew Performance

Neil & Promise of the RealThe audio to songs performed by Neil Young and Promise of the Real are up on Michael Goldberg’s Blog: “Days of the Crazy Wild” and up on You Tube.

He writes:

“Some of the songs, such as the one that may be called “If I Don’t Know,” is quite good — one of his best in some years. Others are more like political rants that, at least on initial listen, don’t hold up. It’s admirable that Young wants to use the platform he has to deliver political messages, but at times his songs suffer because it seems the message is more important than the song. Also, while GMOs are an issue, they pale besides the horrendous impact of animal agriculture on climate change and out environment and I wish Neil Young would get him to the biggest cause of climate change and focus some of his political energy on it.”

Or is that just too hot a topic for Neil Young to address.
