Neil Young has shared a new homemade video for his politically-charged tune “Lookin’ For A Leader”, along with announcing a forthcoming EP project to be titled, The Times.
The new video, which is shot very similar to his Fireside Sessions home-performance series, sees the grizzled veteran rocker playing acoustic guitar and harmonica from what appears to be the porch of his barn. The entire performance is captured from a hand-held camera–likely filmed by his wife/film director Daryl Hannah–who also helped film each of his Fireside Sessions videos.
A statement shared by the outspoken Bernie Sanders supporter with the video on Friday also reads, “I invite the President to play this song at his next rally. A song about the feelings many of us have about America today, it’s part of the ‘The Times,’ and EP coming soon from Reprise Records.”
Watch the new video in full below.

Young found himself in the headlines earlier this month as he’s been planning the forthcoming releases of three archival projects due out before the end of the year. Visit the Neil Young Archives website for more info.
