Neil Young 'takes acoustic guitar to next level' on new album
Posted on 4 Sep 2010 09:14 to category : Band / Celebrity News
Neil Young's new album will have much to offer fans of the musician, his producer has suggested.
Daniel Lanois, who has worked with the likes of U2 and Bob Dylan in the past, told Billboard that the stripped-down record, which is entitled Le Noise, just has Young on the acoustic and electric guitar without any backing band or overdubs.
The album was recorded at Lanois' home in Los Angeles.
"Neil was so appreciative of the sonics that we presented to him," said the producer.
He added that he believes Young has "taken the acoustic guitar to a new level" on the album, which is due to be released towards the end of this month.
Earlier this month, an article on the Alt Sounds website listed Young as one of the musicians who has been most influential in pushing forward the boundaries of what is possible on the acoustic guitar, along with acts such as Bon Iver and Rodrigo y Gabriela.
