More Neil Young More Neil Young

Woodfordia, home of iconic Aussie event Woodford Folk Festival and more, makes an appearance in the latest Neil Young music video.

With Young’s forthcoming record with Crazy Horse, World Record, slated for release in just over a month, the music legend has dropped a clip for album single Love Earth.

The video features footage of the singer-songwriter taking a stroll through nature, cut with vision of him projected onto trees while singing. One of those projections was filmed at Woodfordia, which they are very excited about.

“A little bit of Woodfordia is in Neil Young's latest music clip!” the festival shared.

“Yes, that's Neil Young. Visual artist Craig Walsh projected Neil's image onto the trees of Woodfordia and the vision was included in the film clip for the song Love Earth.

“We are so chuffed a piece of our beloved site made its way into the work of such an iconic artist, for a song which pretty much sums up what we're all about.”

Dropping November 18, Rick Rubin co-produced effort World Record has been described as a “spirited 10-song collection that is a cautiously optimistic meditation on the past, present, and future of our shared planet and what it means to live on it. 

It’s said to contain “a wealth of wisdom, and the kind of poignant observations one can only be collected over an eventful life. The iconoclastic songwriter reminisces with gratitude about the gifts the Earth has given him and sets his sights on an uncertain future with hope that we can right this big, blue and green ship. He does so in a vital and unyielding fashion.”

This past week it was announced that a 50th-anniversary edition of 1972 album Harvest would be released on December 2 via Reprise Records, featuring previously unreleased outtakes, Young’s 1972 BBC performance, two-hour documentary Harvest Time, never-before-seen photographs and more.
