EARTH features performances of songs from a range of Young’s albums, including last year’s The Monsanto Years, 1990’s Ragged Glory, and 1970’s After the Gold Rush. The audio was captured during Young’s 2015 tour with The Promise of the Real, fronted by Lukas Nelson (vocals/guitar) and Micah Nelson (guitar, vocals) – Willie Nelson’s sons. The tour included Young performing solo and with the band for a full electric show.
A new take on some of Young’s most beloved songs, EARTHfeatures the live recordings, along with added musical overdubs, as well as sounds of the earth, such as city sounds like car horns, sounds of insects, and animal sounds from bears, birds, crickets, bees, horses, cows – creating a very strange, yet beautiful atmosphere.
EARTH will be released on CD and vinyl, as well as via Tidal and Young’s PonoMusic Store, where it is currently available for pre-order.
Also on June 24th, Young will release two rare films – the critically acclaimed post-apocalyptic musical comedy Human Highway and the concert feature Rust Never Sleeps – for the first time on DVD and Blu-Ray via Reprise Records.

Human Highway is Young’s 1982 comedy starring Russ Tamblyn, Charlotte Stewart, Dean Stockwell, Dennis Hopper, and Devo, which has been digitally restored for the DVD and Blu-Ray release. Rust Never Sleeps is the full-length feature about Young’s 1978 concert tour and includes such classic young Young’s most popular songs, showcasing classic hits such as “I Am a Child,” featuring Crazy Horse, “Cinnamon Girl,” “Like A Hurricane” and both the acoustic and electric versions of his landmark song “Hey Hey, My My.” Both are currently available for pre-order through the Neil Young Store and Amazon.com.
