Neil Young is not yet done digging from his vault. After giving us Homegrown during the 2020 pandemic alongside with Barn this year, he is now already talking about another album called Summer Songs. The album will be composed of a collection of tracks from 1987.
Young is certainly going a trip down the memory lane with all the records he kept from his vault. When he put out Homegrown, the songs were recorded in 1974 and early 1975, but at that time, he wasn’t comfortable putting it out for the world to hear. He didn’t listen to the songs included in the album for years as he was moving on with the emotions that he put when he wrote down the songs. But now, he is sharing it with us along with other hidden records that will be included in the Summer Songs.
Some of the songs are — “The Last Of His Kind,” “For The Love Of Man,” “American Dream,” “Name Of Love,” “Someday,” “One Of These Days,” “Hanging’ On A Limb,” and “Wrecking Ball”. However, Young and his team are still searching for the recording history of the tracks.
“We are not sure of the exact original dates of these recordings yet,”
“They were all given the same date in the NYA Vault’s records, but they all have a very similar unique sound.”
