As we reported back in March, Neil Young and Crazy Horse have reunited to record their first album in many years. It's called Americana, it comes out June 5, and it is a collection of great American standards and folk songs. While some of the early details about the album weren't all that enticing—particularly the part about the prominent children's choir—"Oh Susannah" sounds like a sloppy mess in the best possible way. If the rest of Americana is like this, it will at the very least be a really fun listen. [via Stereogum]
