Neil Young teased that Crazy Horse’s new album features “unheard-of instrument combinations”.
The 76-year-old music legend worked with Rick Rubin on the follow-up to 2021’s “Barn” at the studio magician’s famed Shangri-La Studios.
And while hijacking an interview with Jack White on Rick’s “Broken Record” podcast, Neil chimed in and teased the upcoming record.
Former White Stripes star Jack, 47, also compared Neil’s long career to that of the Rolling Stones.
He said: “I remember when I was 12 and the Rolling Stones were 40 and everyone was like, ‘Oh my god’ and it’s so good that you can kind of prove it.”
Sharing his secret to longevity in the music industry, Neil replied, “If they have the spirit, they’ll kick things off, because what else can we do?”
In July, the “Heart of Gold” hitmaker confirmed that the album was complete and was “unlike” its predecessor.
He teased, “With this recording, something special is happening and we know we have a good one.
“It’s too early to say more because in this world things come and go so fast. But real magic lasts and we think we have it.”
He added in a blog post on his Neil Young Archives website: “It’s the same band, Crazy Horse, but the music is different from ‘Barn’, our latest offering. “The music lives!!!!! Two records achieved in one year !!!!!!!”
