Want more Neil Young in your life in a visual sense? Great, I've good news for you, then! Le Noise Film — a 38-minute black and white film of eight, live-in-studio performances of the eight songs that appear on Young's brand-new album Le Noise — have been made available for viewing exclusively on YouTube as of right now. These will appear in the "Spotlight" section of YouTube's homepage as well as on Young's YouTube channel (http://www.youtube.com/neilyoung).
The eight-song album is a collaboration between the acclaimed rock icon and musician, songwriter, and multiple Grammy Award-winning producer Lanois, known for his work with U2, Bob Dylan, Peter Gabriel, Brian Eno, Emmylou Harris, Willie Nelson, The Neville Brothers and many others. Le Noise features Young on acoustic and electric guitars with Lanois adding his trademark sonic textures, creating one of the most sonically arresting albums Young has ever recorded. No band, no overdubs, just "a man on a stool and me doing a nice job on the recording," as Lanois puts it.
Le Noise will be released in several formats, including standard CD, vinyl, and digital download. In November, Reprise will also release a Blu-Ray edition, featuring Lanois and Vollick's beautifully shot films of Young. 2010 is feeling like the year of Neil Young.
