New Music Releases – June 2012

Neil Young + Crazy Horse Americana
Warner Brothers / Reprise

The June 2012 New Music Releases schedule features a wide range of classic rock artists, including new albums from Neil Young + Crazy Horse, Rush and most shockingly, the Beach Boys — complete with returning resident musical genius Brian Wilson!

‘Americana’ finds Young reuniting with his most enduring backing band for the first time (in full) since 1996′s ‘Broken Arrow.’ They album will feature their souped-up takes on American folk classics such as ‘Oh Susannah‘ and ‘Jesus Chariot / She’ll Be Comin’ Round the Mountain.’

If you’re a fan of deluxe re-issues and expansive box sets, you’ll think Christmas has come early this year, with Paul Simon issuing a tricked-out (and year-late) 25th anniversary edition of ‘Graceland,’ David Bowie offering an expanded 40th anniversary edition of ‘The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars’ and Heart digging through their archives to release a career retrospective box — complete with a CD full of Led Zeppelin covers if you buy it from the right people — entitled ‘Strange Euphoria.’

You can get all the June 2012 new music release dates below, and in most cases, learn more about the projects by clicking on the links in their titles. For a continually updated list of new music, films and books headed your way from classic rock artists throughout the year, see our 2012 New Music Releases feature.
