In a recent Q&A post on Neil Young‘s Neil Young Archives (NYA) website, the 73-year-old rock icon revealed that he will be getting back into the studio with Crazy Horse for a recording session.

In the Neil Young Archives’ Letter To The Editor section, a fan named Ken asked Neil,

If you can swing Tuscaloosa, Homegrown, a new album in the fall and NYA Vol. 2 for Xmas that would be great. A splendid year indeed. I love the stuff from the Archives, but there has always gotta be room for new work too.

Young responded,

KEN, Crazy Horse is about to enter the studio with 11 new ones. 

The current lineup of Crazy Horse finds Neil Young alongside bassist Billy Talbot, drummer Ralph Molina, and guitarist Nils Lofgren. Next month, Neil Young will open up his solo tour with Promise of the Real at Vancouver, BC’s Queen Elizabeth Theatre on May 14th. The tour was initially scheduled to open up on the following night, May 14th, prior to the recent addition of a second show. Elvis Costello will offer up a guest set at both performances in Vancouver.

A note from Young reads,

I can’t wait to play in Vancouver again at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre where I started my first solo tour of Canada in 1971. The tour took me to Massey hall and the recording of ‘Harvest’ a few weeks later. Making these shows extra special is my old friend Elvis Costello doing guest sets each night. Elvis’ songs and his history in music are amazing. These will truly be incredible nights of meaningful music for our music loving fans.

A fan pre-sale for Neil Young Archives subscribers is currently underway for the new May 14th show.
