Neil Young Talks About ‘Le Noise’ On Q TV
Neil Young will release a brand-new solo album, entitled ‘Le Noise’ today, September 28th on Reprise Records. The eight-song album is a collaboration between the acclaimed rock icon and musician, songwriter, and producer Daniel Lanois, known for his work with U2, Bob Dylan, Peter Gabriel, Brian Eno, Emmylou Harris, Willie Nelson, The Neville Brothers and many others.
Recorded in Lanois’ home in the Silverlake area of Los Angeles, Le Noise features Young on acoustic and electric guitars with Lanois adding his trademark sonic textures, creating one of the most sonically arresting albums Young has ever recorded. No band, no overdubs, just “a man on a stool and Lanois doing a nice job on the recording.”
CBC Q’s Jian Ghomeshi sat down for an exclusive interview with the legendary singer-songwriter Neil Young as well as the producer of Young’s new album ‘Le Noise’ Daniel Lanois.
