Neil Young New album causing a Big Buzz

Published: 2006-04-24
Though fans have yet to hear a single note of Neil Young's new protest album, Living With War, news of its arrival is causing quite the buzz.

As a result it, seems the new album will be out as soon as possible, streaming for free on the Canadian singer-songwriter's website starting April 28. The album will be available for online purchase starting May 2 and the label hopes to have the tangible CD version out between May 5 and May 15.

Details about the songs featured on the CD are also starting to pop up. Tracks on the record will include a "Shock and Awe," "Let's Impeach the President," and the title track "Living With War."

According to Reuters, a song called "Lookin' for a Leader" jabs at the current president with lyrics like "Someone walks among us ... and I hope he hears the call. And maybe it's a woman, or a black man after all."

The album will also include an a cappella version of "America the Beautiful".

Lyrics for half of the new tunes are currently available on Neil Young's official website.
