Neil Young and Promise of the Real Debut New Video For ‘Wolf Moon’
Neil Young has been a man in constant motion since the early days of Buffalo Springfield nearly 50 years ago. The legendary rocker continues to trek forward with the release of a brand new album, The Monsanto Years, due out later this month. Now, Young has just shared another new song -- and video -- from the forthcoming record.
Backed by Promise of the Real (featuring Lukas Nelson, son of Willie), Young delivers a very signature style country-tinged tune in "Wolf Moon," which is sure to please the "Heart of Gold" contingent among his fans. Check it out above.
The new nine-song LP comes less than a year after his last effort, the orchestral based Storytone; the album cover art is a nod to the famous American Gothic painting.
In speaking to a crowd at the IFC Center in New York recently, Young defined the new album as being "about what we're doing as a civilization. It's just the way I feel about it, so I wrote a bunch of songs about it."
Young went on to say, "I don't really have anything against the people at Monsanto, or the human beings working for Monsanto." He went on to call Monsanto "the perfect poster child for the problems we that we have with the corporate government."
