Win Neil Young’s + Crazy Horse’s ‘Americana’ on CD
As we’ve been discussing in great detail over the past weeks, the new album finds Young reunited with a full-strength Crazy Horse for the first time since 1996. (A partial lineup of his longtime backing group backed him on 2003′s ‘Greendale.’)
The project finds Young and the Horse bringing their trademark shambolic style to classic songs — and we’re not talking about hits or album tracks from the ’60s. No, instead they’ve gone way back, to some of the most well-known traditional American folk songs, such as ‘Clementine’ and ‘This Land is Your Land.’
You can read our full review of the album right here, but if you want to be brought up to speed more quickly, suffice it to say we’ve joined much of the rest of the music world in singing ‘Americana”s praises.
The band’s going to be hitting the road in support of the album later this year, so you’ll want to get acquainted with these songs quickly. All you need to do to win a copy of ‘Americana’ for yourself is to sign up below!
