You may be surprised to learn some of the deep secrets of the process as you laugh your ass off in a theater near you. One night only and there is a reason for that.
Neil Young and Crazy Horse have released a short instrumental called ‘A letter from us’ – listen
Following recent songs ‘Rainbow of Colors’ and ‘Milky Way’, and the announcement of new album ‘Colorado’, the new release is a modest ode to Earth that comes in at just 1:18 in length. Paired with a short video offering messages of all the reasons why earth is such a sacred place, each one is signed with the simple phrase, “love life.”
Released on Friday (September 27), Young shared the new song via his Neil Young Archives site with the message: “Thanks for being our home. . . . .”
