Neil Young releasing new old album

In August, 1976 Neil Young went into the studio to record some of the new songs he was working on. Many of them would become standards in the Young catalog like Powderfinger and Pocahontas, which would appear on the Rust Never Sleeps album in full power band style.  Young is releasing the earlier acoustic treatments of these songs as recorded in that 1976 session as the new album Hitchhiker. Some of these have not been heard before, and they are a great example of Young's work in that period. Listen to one of the songs here, and if you'd like to hear the whole album, NPR has it online at the moment at http://www.npr.org/2017/08/31/547036559/first-listen-neil-young-hitchhiker
