Long-Lost Neil Young Album To Be Released This July

By: Renee Grant

A new album is rumored to be coming from Neil Young this summer. Hitchhiker, recorded in 1976, could be here as early as July.

A fansite devoted to Young called Thrasher’s Wheat found the LP listed on an online vinyl store site, Diverse Vinyl, with a release date of July 14th. They also touched on Young’s mention of the album in his memoir Special Deluxe, where he revealed the album was recorded in a day.

“I spent the night there with David and recorded nine solo acoustic songs, completing a tape I called Hitchhiker. It was a complete piece, although I was pretty stony on it, and you can hear it in my performances,” Young wrote.

“Dean Stockwell, my friend and a great actor who I later worked on Human Highway as a co-director, was with us that night, sitting in the room with me as I laid down all the songs in a row, pausing only for weed, beer, or coke. Briggs was in the control room, mixing live on his favorite console.”
