Neil Young Releases New Song ‘Vacancy’

Following the announcement of his long-anticipated LP Homegrown, Neil Young has shared  a new track from the album called ‘Vacancy’. The record, which was recorded from 1974 to 1975 before being shelved, is set for release on June 19th.

‘Vacancy’ was recorded at Young’s Broken Arrow Ranch Studio in 1975 and features Stan Szelest on Wurlitzer organ, Ben Keith on lap slide guitar, Tim Drummond on bass, and Karl T. Himmel on drums.

Accompanying the announcement of the album, Young previously shared the track ‘Try’. Earlier this year, he also released a new version of the song ‘Shut It Down’ from his 2019 album Colorado. The new version, titled ‘Shut It Down 2020’, was “inspired by fans reaching out to Young expressing the elevated poignancy the song has come to represent during this pandemic.”

In the wake of mass protests over the murder of George Floyd, Young also released an acoustic rendition of ‘Southern Man’ recorded in 2019. “We know black lives matter,” he wrote in an op-ed on his website on Monday titled ‘Hope’. “My heart goes out to all our black families affected, so that’s all the black families through American history. I feel like we are turning a corner. All Together, all colors on the street. We know our mission is the right one for America and for mankind.”
