Neil Young & Crazy Horse have been on a tear lately: besides releasing two studio albums this year, they’ve put out a lot of music videos lately. This week, they’ve released two new music videos for songs from their upcoming album Psychedelic Pill.

Neil Young and his long time-band Crazy Horse are about to release their second album of the year: Psychedelic Pill will follow Americana by less than five months when it is released on October 30. Psychedelic Pill, as previously reported, will be a double album (or a 3 LP set), and there will be a video for each of the album’s songs.
Confirming wide-spread rumors, Neil Young and Crazy Horse will release their second record of 2013 this October, a double album called “Psychedelic Pill.”
