    The ever-prolific Neil Young will release a brand new studio album, entitled Peace Trail, on December 2nd via Reprise Records. The album is available for pre-order through and PONOMusic. Those who pre-order will receive an instant download of the title track (and first single). Additional instant downloads will follow for those who pre-order Peace Trail.

    Peace Trail features all new songs that Young wrote since the release of his album EARTH, and recorded within a short time span. The album is primarily acoustic and reflects an intimate, sparse approach that draws the listening into the heart of the songs in a personal way. Each song is rich with Young’s typically inviting lyrical expression of his inimitable impassioned and heartfelt life-long humanitarian concerns which remain as topical and timely as ever.

    Peace Trail was recorded at Rick Rubin’s Shangri- la Studios and features Young on vocals and guitar, Jim Keltner on drums, and Paul Bushnell on bass. It was produced by Young and John Hanlon, mixed by John Hanlon. Most recently Young previewed five songs from the album during his performances during the Desert Trip Festival, in Indio, CA. last week which both Rolling Stone and Entertainment Weekly summed up as simply “explosive.” “Neil slashed and bashed at his guitar, the sound intense and nearly out of control.” – Rolling Stone

    The Los Angeles Times called Young’s performance “intensely powerful,” “furious” and concluded, “combining passion, energy and stinging content, Young served up a deeply rewarding performance.”

    Peace Trail will be released in several configurations: as a physical CD, digital download, and cassette. A vinyl edition will follow in January.

    Neil Young + Promise of the Real will tour Australia and New Zealand in April, Japan in May, and South America in the summer. For more info, visit
