NEIL YOUNG Premieres NEW, Patriotic July 4th Song/Video

"Children of Destiny" Offers Up A Powerful Message.

July 3, 2017

NEIL YOUNG, never one to shy away from expressing his true feelings in his art, has done just that with the (timely) release of a brand new song and accompanying video called, "Children of Destiny." The song was recorded with his current outfit, Promise of The Real (featuring the 2 sons of WILLIE NELSON), and augmented by a 56-piece orchestra, bringing the total of participating musicians to 62! Unknown at the present time is whether this song is a "one-off" effort, or part of a larger project that may still be in the works. The content of the video combines pictures of "traditional" July 4th celebrations juxtaposed with images of recent governmental protests, and the song is available to either purchase or stream from the usual providers of those services.
