Amongst the most legendary singer-songwriters of all time stands Neil Young, the Canadian folk rocker best known for his prolificness and numerous hit singles, such as “Heart Of Gold,” “Old Man” and “Rockin’ In The Free World.” Despite his renowned work as a member of Buffalo Springfield and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young in the 1960s, arguably the most pivotal contributor to Young’s long, illustrious career has been his on-and-off band, Crazy Horse. Although the members of the band have changed throughout the years, Crazy Horse has created over 20 albums with Young since 1969. On June 5, the two forces will be joining yet again to release their first LP together since 2003. With this album, Americana, Neil Young & Crazy Horse decided to take the liberty of putting their spin on some of the most classic American folk songs of all time. With covers of such distinguished ballads as “Oh Susanna” and “This Land Is Your Land,” the set may strike you with a sense of familiarity. With less than a week left until the album hits stores by way of Reprise Records, Young and company has decided to let fans stream it in its entirety on Soundcloud. Hit that link to check it out, head over to Young’s site to watch the 40-minute film accompaniment to the album, and read below for a press release statement regarding the importance of the songs on Americana. Also, be on the lookout for Young’s concert film, Neil Young Journeys, which has a release date of June 29.

“What ties these songs together is the fact that while they may represent an America that may no longer exist, the emotions and scenarios behind these songs still resonate with what’s going on in the country today with equal, if not greater impact nearly 200 years later. The lyrics reflect the same concerns and are still remarkably meaningful to a society going through economic and cultural upheaval, especially during an election year. They are just as poignant and powerful today as the day they were written.”
