Riveting Acoustic Based Collection Recorded with Jim Keltner (Drums) & Paul Bushnell (Bass)
Neil Young offers up his second Reprise Records album of 2016 with the brand new studio effort, entitled Peace Trail. The compelling ten-track set features all new songs that Young wrote since the release of his unconventional album Earth with Promise of the Real, in June.
Peace Trail is a primarily acoustic affair and reflects an intimate, sparse approach to each of the songs within. The album was recorded at Rick Rubin's Shangri-La Studios and features Young on vocals and guitar, Jim Keltner on drums, and Paul Bushnell on bass. It was produced by Young and John Hanlon, and mixed by Hanlon.
"Neil Young matches the fire in his belly to the poetry from his pen for one of the most gripping outings of his long career. This riveting collection, a spare acoustic-electric hybrid, seethes with righteous indignation over a plethora of social and political injustices, but also soothes with deeply felt empathy for those on the receiving end of iniquity." Randy Lewis, Los Angeles Times
