In June, Neil Young wrote on his website that he was heading back to the barn with Crazy Horse and had a bunch of songs ready to go. He sure wasn’t kidding.
This morning, in a tweet through his official Neil Young Archives account, Young announced that the aptly titled Barn, his first album since 2019’s Colorado, will be out on December 10 through Reprise Records. It was recorded, as he said in the June post, in a barn “high in the mountains of Colorado!”
