Neil Young recently launched his tour in Albuquerque, but rather than filling his set with the songs from the ‘Americana’ album that he released back in June, the singer and his band Crazy Horse went heavy with even newer material. Well, we may get to hear the studio versions soon.

Rolling Stone reports that guitarist Frank “Poncho” Sampedro revealed that the singer’s upcoming album, his second with his sporadic but longtime backing band Crazy Horse this year, is titled ‘Psychedelic Pill.’ The song shares its moniker with one of the songs on the album.

Sampedro says, “That song began in the studio when Neil sat down at the piano and began playing chords. Ralph [Molina] was on drums and he started this beat on the snare and wouldn’t stop for nearly an hour. We stood up and played it and realized it was a great song. We just haven’t performed it that great yet, but we’re getting more comfortable every night.”

Sampedro reveals another track that has the band excited from the new album is ‘Walk Like a Giant.’ “We played it one time and the next thing we know we’re doing overdubs. Then he played it for us. The playback blew our minds. We had no idea we’d done something that big. I imagine it’s about Earth being destroyed by this giant, and we’re screening the planet for survivors and s—. I have all these images going through my head. It’s really crazy.”

Fans can look for ‘Psychedelic Pill’ to arrive in October. We will of course share any new information as it comes in. Young and Crazy Horse will continue on their tour through December.
