Watch the premiere of Neil Young’s film Le Noise, featuring performances from his new album of the same name.
This is a unique album from Neil Young. As producer Daniel Lanois puts it, there is no band, no overdubs, just “a man on a stool and me doing a nice job on the recording.”
For the album, Young wrote eight new songs — some autobiographical and some about loss, specifically the loss of friends such as steel guitarist and core band member Ben Keith. Some songs are political: “Love and War” is a reflection on writing about the titular topics so many times for so many years.
