Neil Young’s 35 album will be called “Storeytone” and it comes out in November. It’s his 2nd this year and features the song “Who’s Gonna Stand Up?” which is the lead song from the album and released in three versions, Live with Crazy Horse, Orchestral and Solo acoustic.
Neil Young told this spring:

I’d like to make a record with a full-blown orchestra, live – a mono recording with one mic. I want to do something like that where we really record what happened, with one point of view and the musicians moved closer and farther away, the way it was done in the past. To me that’s a challenge and it’s a sound that’s unbelievable, and you can’t get it any other way.
