Neil Young - Hitchhiker
This is a song of his that’s been kicking around for years. I’ve heard a couple of live versions from tours 20 years ago or so (or maybe 30, I’m not sure), and the lyrics are pretty much exactly the same as they are here.
But he seriously nails it here. His new album, Le Noise, has to be his most interesting in a long, long time. It doesn’t quite sound like any other record he’s done, save for moments that recall the sonic freak-outs of Weld.
Whenever Neil has a new album on the way, I’m always skeptical. Color me impressed, Mr. Young.
zxxzzxx-deactivated20101123 asked: I was just wondering, do you have lots of my old posts saved or something? Because I haven't been pieceofthesky since the beginning of the year and even deleted that old blog and suddenly lots of posts of mine I thought (and hoped) were gone have been popping up.
I have them saved as drafts, I’m sorry if that’s a problem. Just give me the permalinks to the posts you don’t want me to reblog and I will take them down.
The new Neil album, Le Noise, produced by Daniel Lanois, out September 28!
