Casey’s DJ Pick of the Week!
Lightning Casey kicks back this week with Neil Young’s “Try,” a track from his May 2020 album release “Homegrown.” The album had a month-long setback of the release date due to COVID-19.
“Try” is a vulnerable ballad with a country twang in which Young is longing for an old lover. Young attributes his lyrics on the track to the language of his ex wife Carrie Snodgrass.
The veteran rocker has been keeping up with fans on his website. On the “Neil Young Archives Contrarian” you can access a thirty minute video of him performing a set on a farm, which he names his “Barnyard Edition.”
Young also includes articles that range from politics to the renovations of his Hearse Theater. A message reflecting Young’s feelings of the current pandemic is also featured on his website.
Tune into 100.1 FM or lightning100.com to hear Neil Young’s yearning song “Try” and let us know how you interpret his moving lyrics. Tweet at us with #L100DJPick to tell us if we should keep spinning the record.
