Neil Young and Crazy Horse have given Psychedelic Pill, their second album of 2012, an official release date of October 30th.

With a handful of tracks passing the 15-minute barrier, and opener "Driftin' Back" clocking in at a whopping 27 minutes and 36 seconds, the followup to their folk covers record Americana will be available in double-CD and triple-LP formats. Check out the full tracklist below.

"It's us jamming and having lots of fun," Crazy Horse guitarist Frank "Poncho" Sampedro told Rolling Stone earlier this summer. "I think that [former Crazy Horse producer] David Briggs would be proud of it . . . Once he was gone, I felt like we lost our compass a bit. We had the sound and we had the big machine, and we could play anything and play pretty good, but we weren't putting any great records together. I mean, Broken Arrow was OK. It wasn't like Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere or Rust Never Sleeps or Ragged Glory."

Produced by Neil Young with John Hanlon and Mark Humphreys, Psychedelic Pill is the first album of original material by the full line-up of Neil Young and Crazy Horse since Broken Arrow in 1996 – though the band (minus Poncho) did back Young on his 2003 rock opera Greendale

The band resumes their 2012 tour on October 3rd in Windsor, Ontario. It wraps up December 4th in Bridgeport, Connecticut.

Disc One:
1) Driftin' Back (27:36)

Song Stories

“American Girl”

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers | 1976

It turns out that a single with "American" in its title--recorded on the Fourth of July during the nation's Bicentennial, no less--can actually sell better in Britain. Coupled with the Heartbreakers' flair for Byrds jangle and Animals hooks, though, is Tom Petty's native-Florida drawl that keeps this classic grounded at home. Petty dispelled rumors that the song was about a suicidal student, explaining that the inspiration came from when he was 25 and used to salute the highway traffic outside his apartment window. "It sounded like the ocean to me," he recalled. "That was my ocean. My Malibu. Where I heard the waves crash, but it was just the cars going by."
