(Gibson) Hitchhiker, a long-lost Neil Young album originally recorded in 1976, is reportedly coming out this summer. Stereogum reports that Neil Young fan website Thrasher's Wheat found a listing on the website of U.K. retailer Diverse Vinyl that says the album will be available on July 14, and they also recently discovered what appears to be the cover art designed by Young's longtime art director Gary Burden.

At press time, the listing is still there on Diverse Vinyl saying the album is on the Harvest label with a catalog number NYHITCH001. Hitchhiker is said to be a collection of solo acoustic songs that Young recorded at Indigo Ranch Studios in Malibu. In his 2014 memoir Special Deluxe, Young recalled: "I spent the night there with David and recorded nine solo acoustic songs, completing a tape I called Hitchhiker.

"It was a complete piece, although I was pretty stony on it, and you can hear it in my performances. Dean Stockwell, my friend and a great actor who I later worked on Human Highway as a co-director, was with us that night, sitting in the room with me as I laid down all the songs in a row, pausing only for weed, beer, or coke. Briggs was in the control room, mixing live on his favorite console." See Hitchhiker's rumored final tracklist here.
