How prolific is Neil Young?  Not only has he released dozens of albums over his 50-year career – Young’s got entire albums that he didn’t even bother to release. The Canadian rock legend is set to release one of those ‘lost’ albums – Johnny’s Island, which Young recorded in Hawaii in 1982, will feature tracks “Big Pearl,” “Island in the Sun” and “Love Hotel,” among others.  While some of the songs ended up on future recordings,  others have never been released. It’s the second ‘lost’ album from Young in less than a year – last May, he unearthed the previously unreleased 1975 album Homegrown. Young recently sold a 50% stake in his song catalog to Hipgnosis in a deal worth millions.

What albums are you looking forward to in 2021?
