Neil Young will release a brand new studio album, entitled Peace Trail, on December 9th via Reprise Records. The album is now available for pre-order through http://www.neilyoung.com and all participating digital retailers. Those who pre-order will receive an instant download of the title track (and first single). Additional instant downloads will follow for those who pre-order Peace Trail.
Peace Trail features all new songs that Young wrote since the release of his album Earth, this past June. This new album is primarily acoustic and reflects an intimate, sparse approach to each of the ten songs within:
Peace Trail was recorded at Rick Rubin's Shangri- la Studios and features Young on vocals and guitar, Jim Keltner on drums, and Paul Bushnell on bass. It was produced by Young and John Hanlon, mixed by John Hanlon.
Most recently Young previewed five songs from the album during his performances during the Desert Trip Festival, in Indio, CA. He also played some of the songs at shows he did in Pomona. (see our review)
Peace Trail will be released in several configurations: as a physical CD, digital download, and cassette. A vinyl edition will follow in January.
