Neil Young is one busy man. In addition to a lengthy U.S. tour and a new live album, Sugar Mountain Live at Canterbury House 1968, Young is already gearing up to release his follow-up to 2007’s Chrome Dreams II.

In a recent interview with Rollingstone.com, Young detailed the forthcoming record, entitled Toast, which was recorded seven years ago with his legendary backing band Crazy Horse. “It’s a mind blowing record, and I don’t think it’s a commercial record, but it’s great rock’n’roll, very moody, kind of jazzy. The whole thing has got a massive sound about it.”

As of press time, there is no set release date for Toast, but Young’s description of the record’s sound as “really dark” is sure to pique curiosity.”It won’t be the most commercial Crazy Horse album ever out, and I don’t know much about that anymore, because the model for that has changed, and time has changed.”
