Featured Release This Week From Neil Young & Promise Of The Real + Studio One Tracks Top 30 Playlist

Jan 16, 2018

Neil Young maintains his Canadian citizenship (as he makes clear in the video below), but he lives and works in the United States and has opinions about our culture and politics.  In recent years, these opinions have fueled a lot of Young's songwriting and much of the passion of his playing as a musician.  In this he is supported for the second time on a studio album by the California-based band Promise Of The Real, led by Lukas Nelson, son of Willie Nelson.  The albums Young has recorded with Promise Of The Real (including the 2016 live release, Earth) have their own particular feel- distinct from those with Crazy Horse, for example.
