Rolling Stone is reporting that Neil Young is back in the studio working on new material with producer Daniel Lanois. Lanois has previously produced albums for U2 and Bob Dylan. Rolling Stone confirmed the news with long time CSN&Y band mate David Crosby. Crosby said, “Neil told me last week that he was having a great time talking music with him [Lanois] and just relating to him,” Crosby told Rolling Stone. “I said to him: ‘If you want a harmony, I’m volunteering.’ He said: ‘You know, if I need one you’ll be the first guy I call.’ ”

Crosby went on to further praise Neil Young by saying, “He does that [solo acoustic] thing probably better than anybody,” adds Crosby. “One of my most favorite concerts of his was him at the Wiltern in Los Angeles. He had a circle of his guitars around him and a chair, and he walked out there and sang. It was mesmerizing. He’s a fantastic musician, but also a great storyteller. I was standing there in the wings with Bob Dylan. He and I are huge Neil fans, and we didn’t move. We stood there the entire concert and just watched. We were as mesmerized as much as the audience was.”
