With guitarist Frank Sampedro retired, Young and longtime members bass guitarist Billy Talbot and drummer Ralph Molina have added E Street Band member Nils Lofgren to the line-up.
In a move which may surprise long-time fans, Young has included a number of introspective, surprisingly gentle love songs, that sit comfortably alongside his more musically aggressive statements on immigration, ecology, climate change, and apathy. If the 13-minute track She Showed Me The Way is any indication, Young is in a good place musically and personally.
