Young, Crazy Horse prep "Americana"

Tuesday, March 20, 2012 – Neil Young & Crazy Horse will release "Americana" on June 5, their first disc in nearly nine years.

Crazy Horse is Billy Talbot, Ralph Molina, Poncho Sampedro and Young.

"Americana" is collection of classic, American folk songs. In their day, some of these may have been referred to as "protest songs," "murder ballads" or campfire-type songs.

Some of these compositions which, like Tom Dooley and Oh Susannah, were written in the 1800s, while others, like This Land Is Your Land (utilizing the original, widely misinterpreted "deleted verses") and Get A Job, are mid-20th-century folk classics.

The CD was produced by Young and John Hanlon along with Mark Humphreys, and engineered by John Hanlon with John Hausmann and Jeff Pinn. It was recorded at Audio Casa Blanca by John Hanlon.

Songs are:

Oh Susannah

Clementine

Tom Dooley

Gallows Pole

Get A Job

Travel On

High Flyin' Bird

She'll Be Comin 'Round The Mountain

This Land Is Your Land

Wayfarin' Stranger

God Save The Queen
