In a collaboration that I really want to call cute, Neil Young has announced a new album and tour with Willie Nelson’s sons’ band, Promise of the Real.
The album, The Monsanto Years, will feature protest songs against the agricultural company Monsanto, which Young has been battling for years. According to NME, “The singer boycotted Starbucks last year over the coffee company’s involvement with Monsanto in a lawsuit against the state of Vermont’s new requirements to label genetically modified ingredients.”
The Monsanto Years will be released June 16. Young and Promise of the Real’s tour kicks off in July, and the musicians will also be joined by Band of Horses for select dates. See the full list of tour dates at Neil Young’s website.
