Jason Isbell is on the show today and he sings a few songs while he’s at it. This one didn’t make the final interview cut, but you should listen to it anyway. He covers Neil Young’s “Don’t Let It Bring You Down” and then breaks down why he loves the song.

Hear the full interview.

You’ve never heard “She’ll Be Coming Round the Mountain” quite like this. For their first album together in nine years, Neil Young and Crazy Horse have taken classic American folk music and reinvigorated these songs with muscle, radiance and a whole lot of electric guitar.

As for the song itself, Neil Young writes in the liner notes to Americana:

Written in the 1800s based on an old Negro spiritual, this song refers to the second coming of Jesus, and “she” is the chariot Jesus is coming on. Some interpret this as the end of the world. Others have said that “she” refers to union organizer Mary Harris “Mother” Jones going to promote formation of labor unions in the Appalachian coal-mining camps. The Americana arrangement continues the folk process with a new melody, a new title and a combination of lyric sources.

In 1966, Rick James and Neil Young were in a band together called The Mynah Birds. “It’s My Time” is their debut single, which was shelved due to James’ AWOL arrest.

It is mind-blowing in at least five different ways. Enjoy.
