‘Barn ist etwas ganz Besonderes‘, schrieb Young an seine Fans auf The Neil Young Archives. "Es rockt. Es rollt ... Ich wünschte, es wäre jetzt draußen. Es hat Songs, die Teil dieser Zeit sind." "Barn" ("Scheune") entstand zusammen mit Crazy Horse im Juni 2021 in einer Scheune, die Young mit seiner Frau Daryl Hannah oben in den Rocky Mountains restauriert hatte.
BARN, the new Neil Young/Crazy Horse album was recorded in a remote, restored, 19th century log barn. This musical family has played together for a half century, yet they continue creating new music. Neil and the Horse fans have long shouted for “more barn” and here it is… 10 new songs that capture the wild, rock and roll spirit, the idiosyncratic raw sound and the lyrical beauty that epitomizes a classic NYCH collaboration. The last song appeared on the last morning and was recorded just an hour later during a pounding hailstorm and during the full moon. The album was recorded this summer over a handful of days. The ten new songs encompass all that Neil Young with Crazy Horse are known for, beautiful romantic acoustic ballads, powerhouse electric rockers and insightful rollicking tunes that stick with you.
