Neil Young has shared a third single from his upcoming album, Peace Trail. Listen to “My Pledge” above, via Spotify.
The track finds Neil layering spoken word and computerized vocals accompanied with mellow acoustic playing, and an upbeat rhythm section of bass and drums. Lyrically, Neil rambles through a series of vignettes that subtly touch on his memories, reflecting on what he has seen in society and in music history. In the end, it’s a pledge of truth where he even admits right off the bat that he hasn’t always been true.
