Neil Young’s Protest Album Online First

Neil Young’s newly recorded protest album “Living With War,” including a song calling for the impeachment of President Bush, will be posted for free Internet streaming next week.

Starting April 28, fans can log onto Neil Young’s Web site, and listen to the 10-track collection in its entirety, free of charge.

The Canadian-born Young, 60, who has tackled social and political themes through four decades as a singer-songwriter, wrote and recorded his latest studio offering over a two-week period this month, backed by a 100-member choir.

Much of the album conveys a sense of outrage, vowing repeatedly in the title track “to never kill again,” mocking Bush’s conduct of the Iraq war in “Shock and Awe” and calling for his removal from office in a provocative song titled “Let’s Impeach the President.”

The album also strikes a chord of empathy with soldiers separated from their families, and features lyrics ridiculing America’s consumer culture, political corruption and religious fundamentalism.
