Neil Young's forthcoming album with Crazy Horse will be one "one of the most diverse albums" he has ever made, according to the singer's Archives website.

The new record, due later this year, will be Young's first album with Crazy Horse since Psychedelic Pill in 2012.

"We just had the album playback," enthuses the Canadian singer on the website. "Eleven new songs - ranging from three minutes to 14 minutes of music each - were played at full volume on our stereo system.

Young: "We believe we have a great Crazy Horse album"

"We believe we have a great Crazy Horse album, one to stand alongside Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere, Rust Never Sleeps, Sleeps With AngelsPsychedelic Pill and all the others.

"Untitled at the moment, our Crazy Horse album with Nils Lofgren, Ralph Molina and Billy Talbot stands as one of the most diverse albums I have ever made and I can’t wait for you to hear it.

"That means there will be scheduled changes and release date adjustments as this new album finds its release in the early Fall of 2019 - displacing older re-release projects."

Young added: "Whatever label this brand new Crazy Horse album is on, it will be a proud moment for all involved, something we were not sure we would get to do. We did it though, and it rocks. I am so thankful."

Neil Young and Bob Dylan will perform on the same bill at Nowlan Park, Kilkenny on July 14.
