(hennemusic) Neil Young and Crazy Horse's new album, "Americana," will be released on June 5. The tunes on are all covers of classic American folk songs, including "This Land Is Your Land," "Gallows Pole," "Tom Dooley" and "Clementine."

Neil recently issued the first video for the project; it's for "Oh Susannah" Now, a second track has been released: "Jesus' Chariot (She'll Be Coming Round The Mountain)."

"Written in the 1800s based on an old Negro spiritual, this song refers to the second coming of Jesus, and "she" is the chariot Jesus is coming on," writes Neil in the album's liner notes. "Some interpret this as the end of the world. Others have said that "she" refers to union organizer Mary Harris "Mother" Jones going to promote formation of labor unions in the Appalachian coal-mining camps. The Americana arrangement continues the folk process with a new melody, a new title and a combination of lyric sources." Check it out here.
