Neil Young Unveils New Artwork for ‘Psychedelic Pill’ Album
Ever one to change his mind at the drop of a hat, Neil Young has decided on new covert art for his upcoming album, ‘Psychedelic Pill.’ The two-CD set, which was recorded with longtime cohorts Crazy Horse, will be released on Oct. 30.
The new artwork removes the astronomical imagery from the original and increases the circular object that was in the center of the artwork to full size. When blown up it is revealed that the object is a pill with Neil Young and Crazy Horse’s logo of a silhouetted Native American riding a horse.
According to the press release, the new design has “taken on a stronger, more direct image to reflect the commanding and expansive music heard on the two CD or three vinyl disc sets.”
‘Psychedelic Pill’ is a two-CD set comprised of nine songs. Three of its tracks clock in at over 16 minutes, with the opener, ‘Driftin’ Back’ lasting 27:36. A triple-LP edition will be available Nov. 23. It is Neil Young’s second album with Crazy Horse to be released this year. ‘Americana,’ their take on traditional American folk songs, came out in June.
