Neil Young’s never-before-released album Toast, which was recorded and shelved over two decades ago, will finally see the light of day later this year.

Recorded with the help of Young’s Crazy Horse collaborators, Toast was recorded in San Francisco’s Toast Studios way back in 2001, but was never released. In his online virtual newspaper The Times Contrarian, Young commented that Toast “was so sad I couldn’t put it out”.
