Neil Young + Promise Of The Real are set release their new studio album The Visitor on December 1. A vinyl edition will follow on January 5, 2018.
"I'm a Canadian by the way and I love the USA," he sings on the first song "Already Great."
The ethos of The Visitor can be summed up in the refrain of “Already Great” where Young insists, “Already great, you’re already great. You’re the promise land, the helping hand. No wall. No hate. No fascist USA. Whose Street? Our Street.”
By the end of the recording sessions, he knew he'd made his most diverse album going all the way back to Harvest in 1972, when America was also in the throes of becoming unhinged.
The Visitor is an intriguing peek into the mind and heart of one of rock & roll's true seekers. Young has often said that when things become ordinary, he's ready to shake things up and head for new ground. It has always been what marks Young's music.
