Album Pre-Order Begins Today
August 4, 2017 (Burbank, CA) – Neil Young
will open his archive and release Hitchhiker,
an unreleased new studio album. The release date is September 8, 2017
on Reprise Records – it will be available on vinyl, CD and digitally. The 10-track acoustic solo album was recorded in Malibu, CA at Indigo Studio in 1976. The original session was produced by Young’s long-time studio collaborator David Briggs. Pre-order for Hitchhiker
begins today. Go here for details: https://wbr.ec/hitchhiker
Recorded between Zuma and American Stars and Bars as a solo album in a single session, the resultant performances are truly breathtaking and passionate. The simplicity of a single voice and guitar captured here is as pure and powerful as it gets, with only Young, Briggs and actor Dean Stockwell in the room at the time of recording. A few of the songs would not appear on vinyl until years later. Some have never been heard, included in the original sessions for Neil Young and Crazy Horse’s Dume, another unreleased record of original sessions that yielded the classic album, Zuma. When the Hitchhiker album was recorded, none of the included songs had ever been released and many of the performances of the songs were the first ever. This is truly an album of original performances.

“Playing with that idea, throughout all the songs, there is also a story woven in that
plays on a few different ideas,” Lessard explains. “Even beyond the actual lyrics and what
they are literally saying, some of the vocal sounds themselves play a part.”It’s a crude summary of an ambitious project – one that has dense layers of
sophistication listeners can delve into on their own, while others may be just as happy
to nod their head along to the expansive rhythms and accessible song motifs.The men of The Contortionist remain in awe of prog-titans like Yes, King Crimson and
Rush. At the same time, the music they are creating will not only build bridges between
different genres and different scenes; it can even send younger fans to dig through their
parents’ LP collections look for albums by old legends. Language is more than capable of
launching The Contortionist to the top of the progressive realm and into the creative
