Pullin’ ‘Tubes: Light It Up

Late last year when I caught Neil Young at Madison Square Garden, the legendary rocker used part of his monster three hour show to showcase a handful of new tunes from his next album, Fork In The Road, joking to the crowd to cheer whether they liked them or not since he was trying to impress some label reps in the crowd. While most in room probably were wishing he’d used the time to belt out some more classics, the songs were rooted in classic Harvest-era Young containing poignant lyrics about the environment that would have made Al Gore proud.

The album, which is the 33rd in Young’s storied career, was inspired by his efforts to turn an old 1959 Lincoln Continental, dubbed the Lincvolt, into an eco-friendly car that runs on alternative energy.  A documentary that will follow Young as he drives the prototype car cross-country to Washington, DC is being made. Let’s check out Neil’s homemade video for Light A Candle…

Young is currently wrapping up a slew of North American dates before he heads overseas for a series of concerts throughout Europe.
