Neil Young Confirms New, Electric Car-Inspired LP ìFork in the Roadî Due April 7th
When Neil Young began playing nine new songs a night towards the end of his 2008 tour it became apparent a new album was in the works. Today it was confirmed that Fork in the Road, a theme record about Youngís Linc Volt electric car project, will come out April 7th. The title track was turned into a hilarious YouTube video earlier this year. The only previously unheard song is ìJohnny Magic,î a loving tribute to Jonathan Goodwin, who is Youngís partner in the Linc Volt project. Young has spent significant amounts of time working with Goodwin at his Wichita Kansas garage over the past year. Goodwin, known as the ìmotorhead messiah,î is one of the worlds preeminent electric car experts, and has little interest in his partnerís other career. ìFor the first month I thought he was Neil Diamond,î Goodwin told Rolling Stone last year. ìI guess he is another singer. My wife told me ëThatís Neil Young. He sings the older songs.í To this day Iíve never listened to any of his music.î
The album was recorded with Youngís touring band, which includes Ben Keith (pedal steel guitar, keyboards), Chad Cromwell (drums), Rick Rosas (bass), Pegi Young (vocals) and Anthony Crawford (vocals, guitar). They just wrapped
up an Australian tour and are headed to Canada and Europe later in the year.
