Click above to check out Neil Young’s new video for “Light a Candle,” which Rolling Stone is pleased to bring you exclusively. In the clip, Young is wearing a T-shirt that says “The 2nd Big Bang. World Wide Web. Born From High Energy Physics.” In the past few years Young’s made much use of the Web, from blogging about his LincVolt electric car project to posting thousands of fan-made protest songs to creating super shoe-string budget music videos. This one — the second video from the forthcoming Fork In The Road — features Young and his wife Pegi sitting in front of an old school camper.
The track was a regular part of Young’s 2008 world tour and reflects his optimism that his car project can eliminate roadside refueling and change the world. It’s the quietest song Fork In The Road, a concept album about LincVolt that was recorded with his touring band. Other tracks include “Off The Road,” “Hit The Road,” “Get Behind The Wheel” and “Fuel Line.” As for the odd shirt, a Google search reveals that it’s the name of a 1998 paper written by Stanford Professor Bebo White.
