At Shangri La Studios in Malibu, California, Zane Lowe had a personal discussion with Neil Young and record producer Rick Rubin.

In the conversation, they talk about the forthcoming album “World Record,” the advantages and difficulties of tape recording, and the relative merits of digital and analog music production.

World Record was recorded live on tape by Young and Crazy Horse at Rick Rubin’s Shangri-La studio in Malibu. Young’s preferred matters, politics, and physical media have been combined in the album’s release thus far. The album is available on 2xLP vinyl, cassette, double CD, and premium streaming services like XStream and Atmos/Spatial, and the first single, “Love Earth,” calls for society to take climate change seriously.

When Young interrupted a podcast conversation between Rubin and Jack White, they talked about “World Record.” Barn, the last album by Crazy Horse, was released in 2021, whereas Harvest, Neil Young’s fourth studio album, will receive a special 50th-anniversary edition in December.
