Neil Young's Le Noise Out Today

Neil Young is back with a new record, Le Noise. It's out today, September 28. The eight song record was produced by Daniel Lanois. Check out the video of "Love and War" from the record below.
Young and Lanois have crossed paths musically over the course of many years (Lanois’ performances at Young’s Bridge School Benefit Concert and Young’s performance at Farm Aid when Lanois was Willie Nelson’s music director) but this is the first time the two have recorded together.

Recorded in Lanois’ home in the Silverlake area of Los Angeles, Le Noise
features Young on acoustic and electric guitars with Lanois adding his trademark sonic textures, creating one of the most sonically arresting albums Young has ever recorded. No band, no overdubs, just “a man on a stool and me doing a nice job on the recording,” as Lanois puts it.
