On Friday, February 17, Pegi Young will release a new studio album titled Raw, “a collection of songs about love, loss and forgiveness.”
Most of the album was written in 2014 after her separation/divorce from Neil Young, to whom Pegi was married for 36 years. In addition to new compositions, Raw features several covers, among them reinterpretations of Don Henley’s “The Heart of the Matter” and Ray Charles’ “Do I Ever Cross Your Mind.”
Said Young of the album:
“I’ve begun to look at this record as a soundtrack to the seven stages of grief. And each song could be sung by either party.”
Below, watch the newly-premiered music video for “Too Little Too Late’:

And here’s the album’s track listing:
1) “Why?”
2) “Give My Best To You”
3) “Too Little Too Late”
4) “Trying To Live My Life Without You”
5) “A Thousand Tears”
6) “Lonely”
7) “Just When I Needed You Most”
8) “Do I Ever Cross Your Mind”
9) “You Won’t Take My Laugh From Me”
10) “Up To Here”
11) “These Boots Are Made For Walking”
12) “Heart Of The Matter”
Raw is the result of Young’s colalborations with Muscle Shoals icon Spooner Oldham and a handful of other quality musicians:
In addition to Spooner Oldham, Young’s band The Survivors features Muscle Shoals-based guitarist Kelvin Holly (a veteran of Little Richard’s band), drummer Phil Jones (Tom Petty, Joe Walsh), and bassist Shonna Tucker (Drive-By Truckers), who’ve added soulful muscle to the sonic texture.  
Full tour dates are forthcoming, so stay tuned.
