No, you continue to can’t stream Neil Younger on Spotify, however you will have the prospect to listen to his long-shelved Loopy Horse album Toast this summer time. The 2001 file might be launched in full on July eighth by way of Reprise, and at this time, Younger is previewing it with the tune “Standing within the Gentle of Love.”

Younger and Loopy Horse recorded the aptly-named Toast at Toast Studios in San Francisco. In a press release, the musician writes that the album ended up being “so unhappy that [he] couldn’t put it out.” He explains: “I simply skipped it and went on to do one other album as a replacement. I couldn’t deal with it at the moment.” That subsequent album would’ve been 2002’s Are You Passionate?

“The music of Toast is a few relationship,” Younger provides. “There’s a time in lots of relationships that go unhealthy, a time lengthy earlier than the break up, the place it dawns on one of many folks, possibly each, that it’s over. This was that point.”

Whereas “Standing within the Gentle of Love” would possibly sound like an upbeat rock jam on first cross, its lyrics paint an image a lot darker. Younger seems to be fairly clearly referencing that point when you realize a relationship is coming to a brutal finish: “I don’t know the way you’re feeling/ However for me it’s getting exhausting/ Swimming within the deep blue sea/ Marching within the large parade,” he croons within the first verse. Then, later: “Drowning within the deep blue sea/ Drudging within the lengthy parade.” Ouch.
