NEIL YOUNG Releases Unreleased Album From 2001 – ‘TOAST’ Lands On 8 July

28 May 2022

Living legend NEIL YOUNG has a new, old album out in July ,
titled TOAST. It was recorded in 2001. Pre-order info here.

Young about the album: “Toast is an album that stands on its own in my collection.
Unlike any other, Toast was so sad that I couldn’t put it out. I just skipped it and went
on to do another album in its place. I couldn’t handle it at that time. 2001.

John Coltrane, one of my heroes, made some music at ‘Toast’ studio back in the day. It may have been called ‘Coast’ then, but maybe not. The name changed a few times back and forth. It was on Mission in SF. The back door opened onto an alley. It was so stuffy in there that we left the door open until one day we saw rats coming in and out. After that, we just went outside for a smoke.

The music of Toast is about a relationship. There is a time in many relationships that go bad, a time long before the break up, where it dawns on one of the people, maybe both, that it’s over. This was that time.”

Ahead of the release, we get one track.

Standing In The Light Of Love is a vintage Young cracker.

Keep on rockin’ in the free world, Neil…

New single: TOAST – the third taster off the LP

Nick Allbrook (frontman) about the song: “I often wonder about the
money hoarders, climate change deniers, earth-pilferers and adventure
capitalists. Are they nihilists or anarchists or do they really believe they
are to be saved by some Rock Opera Jesus? We may never know, but here
is “Toast,” which is hopefully as smooth as the smooth, smooth sailing of
our glorious leaders fat old white lives.”

Toast sounds and feels like a careless walk on the beach when the night
falls, but lyrically it’s a wry reservation about the (rich) people who screw
up our planet.
