Neil Young Lost 1975 Album Homegrown Coming 6/19

Neil Young recorded Homegrown back in 1975 and it sat on the shelf until recently when it was unearthed dusted off and set up for release later this month.

Young has spoken directly to the albums release:
I apologize. This album Homegrown should have been there for you a couple of years after Harvest. It’s the sad side of a love affair. The damage done. The heartache. I just couldn’t listen to it. I wanted to move on. So I kept it to myself, hidden away in the vault, on the shelf, in the back of my mind….but I should have shared it. It’s actually beautiful. That’s why I made it in the first place. Sometimes life hurts. You know what I mean. This is the one that got away. Recorded in analog in 1974 and early 1975 from the original master tapes and restored with love and care by John Hanlon. Levon Helm is drumming on some tracks, Karl T Himmel on others, Emmylou Harris singing on one Homegrown contains a narration, several acoustic solo songs never even published or heard until this release and some great songs played with a great band of my friends, including Ben Keith – steel and slide – Tim Drummond – bass and Stan Szelest – piano. Anyway, it’s coming your way in 2020, the first release from our archive in the new decade. Come with us into 2020 as we bring the past.
RtBE has always enjoyed Uncle Neil and wrote about him a bunch in our Masters series last year. As a preview to Homegrown's upcoming release, here is "Try" from the album:
