Neil Young has revealed that his long-unreleased 1975 album Homegrown will be his initial release of the New Year. The album famously got bumped so that Young could issue the divisive classic, Tonight's The Night collection on June 20th, 1975.
Young posted to fans on his official website, writing: "Homegrown will be our first release of 2020, sounding great in vinyl — as it was meant to be. A record full of love lost and explorations. A record that has been hidden for decades. Too personal and revealing to expose in the freshness of those times. The unheard bridge between Harvest and Comes A Time, Homegrown is coming to (Neil Young Archives) first in 2020!" (NeilYoungArchives)
