Neil Young reteams with Promise of the Real for a new album titled The Visitor, their second studio LP together following 2015’s The Monsanto Years.
The album, due out December 1st, comes just three months after Young released Hitchhiker, his long-lost LP of acoustic songs recorded over one night in August 1976.
Young and Promise of the Real also shared the album’s first single “Already Great,” a rumbling, tongue-in-cheek response to Donald Trump’s “Make America Great Again” campaign slogan. The singer previously denied Trump’s use of “Rockin’ in the Free World” during the 2016 presidential campaign and roared “Fuck you, Donald Trump”onstage during a June 2016 concert.
“You’re already great / You’re the promised land / You’re the helping hand,” Young sings to the U.S. on the chorus. The track ends with a repeated chant of “Whose streets? Our streets!,” a popular rallying cry at recent protests.
