(RADIO.COM) – In a recent interview with filmmaker Cameron Crowe, Neil Young confirmed that he’s currently in the studio working on his 37th solo album. Like his last one, 2015’s The Monsanto Years, his backing band is Promise of the Real, the band that features Willie Nelson’s sons Lukas and Micah.

After the event, Young told Rolling Stone that “It’s like nothing that I’ve done. It’s more like a giant radio show. It has no stops. The songs are too long for iTunes, thank God, so they won’t be on iTunes. I’m making it available in the formats that can handle it.” This likely means that the songs on the album are longer than 10 minutes. Young famously dislikes iTunes, which he feels offers poor sound quality; he has created his own digital music player, called Pono.

He says the album is “Like a live show, but it’s not like a live show. Imagine it’s a live show where the audience is full of every living thing on earth — all of the animals and insects and amphibians and birds and everybody — we’re all represented. And also they overtake the music once in a while and play the instruments. It’s not conventional … but it is based on live performance.”
