Neil Young fans can check out an official video for the song “Almost Always.” The track is from the two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Famer's latest studio album Visitor, which dropped Dec. 1, 2017 via Reprise.
The two-time Grammy winner unveiled the clip on Feb. 1 via YouTube in conjunction with the announcement that Young and fellow music legend Willie Nelson will star in actress Daryl Hannah's directorial film debut – a western titled “Paradox,” which will premiere at SXSW next month. Hannah, who Young began openly dating back in 2014 after his divorce from longtime spouse Pegi Young , also directed the video for "Almost Always."
The 4:49 minute clip opens with acoustic guitar and harp intro, as an outstretched reaches towards the sun. A budding sprout bursts from the soil in quick-time photography as Young sings, “Lately I been thinking/'Bout the changing world/Trying to fit in pieces of dreams.”
Recorded with the "Heart of Gold" hitmaker's current backing band Promise of the Real, Visitor features ten tracks and is available here in CD, digital and double vinyl formats. Check out the video for “Almost Always” above.
After a low-key 2017, fans have seen a flurry of activity from Young in the last couple of months, which included the release of Visitor, as well as his massive music archive website, which fans can check out free for a limited time here. The ex-Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young star will be back in action live when he teams up with his former Buffalo Springfield and CSN&Y bandmate Stephen Stills at the Light Up the Blues benefit concert, scheduled for April 21 in Los Angeles at the Dolby Theatre.
