The legend known as Neil Young took to Facebook to announce the September 28 release of his new studio album, Le Noise. The album follows 2008's concept disc, Fork in the Road, and was recorded in a Los Angeles mansion with producer Daniel Lanois (U2, Bob Dylan.)
"Le Noise is complete," Young wrote on his page. "It is a solo record. Playbacks are happening now." According to his update, the disc will be available on vinyl, CD and iTunes in its first edition, followed by releases in the Blu-Ray format and as an iPhone and iPad application by late October. The app will be free and feature an interactive album cover! How modern and multi-generational of Neil Young. Love seeing that he changes with the times.
What do you think of Young's ability to use modern constructs like social media and iPhone apps to promote his music, since his audience is not the digital generation?
