Nils Lofgren is back with Neil Young and Crazy Horse for new album, 'Colorado'

Neil Young has once again reconvened his gloriously loud rock band Crazy Horse for a new album, “Colorado,” due Oct. 25, their first together since 2012′s “Psychedelic Pill.”

For the new album, early Crazy Horse member and recurrent Young collaborator Nils Lofgren is back in the fold, taking over for guitarist Frank "Poncho" Sampedro, who is dealing with health issues.

With Bruce Springsteen pursuing solo endeavors, Lofgren, 68, is temporarily free from his responsibilities as a longtime member of the E Street Band, allowing him to renew his working relationship with Young. That connection dates to 1970 when, at age 18, he first recorded with Young on the "After the Gold Rush" album.

"The whole idea was not learning songs too well, trusting your instincts," says Lofgren. "That's the heart and soul of that band."

Lofgren also was in the Crazy Horse lineup in 1973, when Young recorded and toured with his "Tonight's the Night" album, and again teamed with Young for his hotly debated 1982 electronic album and tour, "Trans."

The guitarist, singer and songwriter told The Times that each stint with Young and Crazy Horse (which also includes bassist Billy Talbot and drummer Ralph Molina) is "like getting on a wild horse that just keeps throwing me. I get back on, the Horse throws me, and I get back on again."
