Neil Young + Crazy Horse Release 17-Minute Video for Epic New Song ‘Ramada Inn’
It won’t be out until the end of the month, but Neil Young isn’t waiting until Oct. 30 to start premiering music from ‘Psychedelic Pill,’ his new album with Crazy Horse — in fact, he’s just released a video for one of the record’s longest tracks, ‘Ramada Inn.’
Weighing in at a hefty 16 minutes and 49 seconds, ‘Inn’ finds Young and Crazy Horse laying out and digging in to tell the story of a marriage on the verge of collapse — but it’s only the second-longest track on the record, which also includes the nearly half-hour ‘Driftin’ Back’ as well as ‘Walk Like a Giant,’ which is nearly as long as ‘Ramada Inn.’
Those are some pretty impressive running times, but they shouldn’t come as any surprise to Young fans, who know how comfortably he and Crazy Horse can settle into a groove — nine of the 10 songs on their last album together, 2003′s ‘Greendale,’ crossed the five-minute mark, and three of those were longer than 10 minutes. Clearly, Neil and the guys came to play with ‘Psychedelic Pill’; check out the video for ‘Ramada Inn’ below, and let us know if you’re excited to hear the rest of the record.
