Neil Young and Crazy Horse have dropped “Milky Way,” the first track from their forthcoming collaborative record, Colorado.
The soft love ballad comes packed with a gritty, wailing electric guitar line and a silky drum beat as Young’s gritty, folky vocals take the forefront. The track truly revolves around the artists’ honest, story-like lyricism, as Young sings lines like, “She was looking like a friend of mine/ The first time I saw her face/ I was approaching at the end of a line/ The first time I ever saw her smile at me that way.
Listen to “Milky Way” below.
Colorado is set for release on October 25th.
