Neil Young has confirmed on his website that he is recording a new Crazy Horse album.
“Crazy Horse recording is under way. The Horse is back in the barn now, shaking off the rust.”
Young is working with Larry Cragg, Jeff Pinn, Bob Rice and Paul Davies – and he said that “it has been a long time since we have been together, and more than a few tears have been shed”.
“We are so happy to be back in the barn, a barn built to replicate the 1850s barn that had collapsed in exactly the same place, high in the mountains of Colorado,” Young added about the location of these recording sessions.
“It’s an exact replica of the original, built with Ponderosa pines by Ted Moews and his great crew of artisans. It is magic inside.”
“Mark Humphries is doing our monitors, continuing a near 50-year tradition. Mark notes that this is our ‘new barn’ to replace Plywood Analog on Broken Arrow Ranch, where we did ‘Ragged Glory’, ‘Freedom’ and other albums.
“These are new times, with new songs and feelings after what our world has been through and continues to face.
“The music we are making for our souls. It’s like fresh water on a desert. Life is going on.”
