Neil Young will present a series of unique watercolor paintings and prints in his first-ever West Coast art exhibition called Special Deluxe at the Robert Berman Gallery in Santa Monica, Calif. throughout the month of November.
The work in Special Deluxe will be on exhibit through the month of November with a reception with Young held on Monday, November 3rd from 7 to 9 pm. The address for the Robert Berman Gallery is Bergamot Station Arts Center, 2525 Michigan Ave. B7 Gallery. Santa Monica, CA 90404.
One of the paintings on display also serves as the cover for Young’s new album Storytone, which will be released on November 4th on Reprise Records. Storytone features 10 brand-new compositions recorded live in the studio; some with a 92-piece orchestra, choir, and Young, some with a 60-piece orchestra, and three with a big band. Young took a different approach with this record, first recording the songs on his own in a solo setting, then creating compelling versions of the songs in a new light with an orchestra and big band, resulting in a deeply personal emotional listening experience.
Those who pre-order the deluxe CD edition, deluxe vinyl edition or the PonoMusic edition will receive instant downloads of both the orchestral and solo versions of “Who’s Gonna Stand Up?”
