Neil Young - Le Noise

Neil Young released a brand-new solo album, entitled Le Noise, on September 28th. The eight-song album is a collaboration with Daniel Lanois, known for his work with U2, Bob Dylan, Peter Gabriel, Willie Nelson and many others.

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.

To accompany Le Noise, a black-and-white movie of Neil Young performing the eight songs from the album was posted on Young’s YouTube channel. The 38-minute film shot by Adam CK Vollick captures the musician performing solo on both acoustic and electric guitars, including his famous Gretsch White Falcon.
