“Storytone” is the title of the new orchestral album by Neil Young

Neil YoungNeil Young is without a doubt one of the most prolific artists of the contemporary music scene. A prolific and versatile, you would even say. Dates back a few months ago the release of “A Letter Home”, the low-fi album in which Young covers some songs, products in Neshville, in the studios of Jack White and, specifically, in a “Voice -o-graph”, a 2 square meters cabin for live recording. This interesting experiment – that convinced us above all to the resulting sound (the sound is ancient, rough) – had been followed by two other works that could be called experimental and partly complementary: “American” and “Psychedelic Pill “. Both albums were released in 2012 and played with Crazy Horse, the historic band that Young was not working since the beginning of the twenty-first century. The first is a collection of songs from the American musical tradition. The second, however, is a double album born from the recording session of “American” and looks like a disk impromptu, improvised, dense and, in general, psychedelic. In 2013 Young released his autobiography, entitled “The dream of a hippie” and output in Italy by Feltrinelli, which covers the years that went through like a splinter poking all kinds of music, from country to blues, grunge folk, and so on. Now comes to Reprise Records “Storytone”, a new solo album, written by Young and performed with orchestra. This is the thirty-fifth album by the Canadian-born singer-songwriter and at the same time, a new course of his inspiration. The album consists of ten songs played with an 92 elements orchestra and a choir. It will be available in the deluxe version, which you can listen to the same songs played only by Young and a few other instruments (guitar, piano, dulcimmer).
