Watch Neil Young & Crazy Horse’s “Clementine”

May 18th, 2012 in Music

Neil Young & Crazy Horse have released yet another new video from their impending new album, Americana.  Check out Clementine below.  We’re liking what we’re hearing (the Crazy Horse chorus is crazy-good).

Neil has this to say about their cover of Clementine:

“”The Americana arrangement extends the folk process using many of the original words and a new melody. The song tells the story of either a bereaved lover recalling his lost sweetheart, or a father missing his lost daughter. In both cases the daughter has drowned in an accident. The verse about Clementine’s sister has been omitted from most children’s versions. This verse has different meanings depending on whether the point of view of the singer is taken as the lover or the father.”
