Roughly forty-six years after its original recording, Neil Young announces the release of one his most storied and sought-after albums ever, Homegrown. Often referred to by fans as one of Young’s mysterious, great “lost albums,” the twelve studio tracks will be released on all formats on June 19th, via Reprise Records. Album pre-orders begin today and will include an instant download of previously unreleased album track “Try.”
“I apologize. This album Homegrown should have been there for you a couple of years after Harvest. It’s the sad side of a love a air. The damage done. The heartache. I just couldn’t listen to it. I wanted to move on. So I kept it to myself, hidden away in the vault, on the shelf, in the back of my mind….but I should have shared it. It’s actually beautiful. That’s why I made it in the rst place. Sometimes life hurts. You know what I mean. This is the one that got away.
Recorded in analog in 1974 and early 1975, Homegrown was mixed at that time to original stereo analog master tapes. These original mixes have been restored with love and care by John Hanlon, and mastered by Chris Bellman at Bernie Grundman Mastering, making Homegrown a completely original album.
The album is made up of twelve Neil Young songs, of which seven are previously unreleased – “Separate Ways,” “Try,” “Mexico,” “Kansas,” We Don’t Smoke It No More,” “Vacancy” and “Florida” (a spoken word narration). Also included are the rst recordings of “Homegrown,” “White Line,” and “Star Of Bethlehem” – di erent versions of which would all later appear on other Neil Young albums. The versions of “Love Is A Rose” and “Little Wing” have been previously released on the 1977 compilation Decade.
