Rust never sleeps and netiher does Neil Young, who has released a brand new studio recording titled, "Who's Gonna Stand Up?," via NeilYoung.com. It is featured on his upcoming album, STOREYTONE, which will be released this November.
The song was originally performed at a Crazy Horse show in the U.K. this summer and more recently was part of Young's solo acoustic set at Farm Aid this past Sept 13th, at Walnut Creek Amphitheater in Raleigh North Carolina. The audience did indeed stand up and sing along in unison in support of the song's plea to end our dependence of fossil fuels and realize our responsibility to protect our earth's fragile eco systems to ensure the quality of life for future generations.
