Neil Young sat in on wife Pegi's gig Sept. 11 at a small club called Johnny D's in Somerville, Mass. much to the delight of the 300 fans in attendance and served up a new song.
According to an article posted Sept. 12 at RollingStone.com, the legendary Canuck singer-songwriter joined in with Peggi's backing group The Survivors (which includes many of the "Heart of Gold" hitmaker's former touring musicians) during her set and also performed a new song of his own entitled "Drive My Car."
The tune is a twangy medium-tempo rocker, which allowed for plenty of room for guitar jamming.
Fans can check out a video of the performance at YouTube.com.
Young is currently on a brief hiatus from touring, after being forced to cancel remaining tour gigs in Europe, Canada and the U.S. due to a hand fracture suffered by Crazy Horse guitarist Frank "Poncho" Sampedro.
The ex-Buffalo Springfield/CSN&Y veteran will be back on stage headlining on Sept. 21 in Saratoga Springs, N.Y. at Farm Aid and will be reuniting with Crosby, Stills and Nash on Oct. 26 and Oct. 27 in Mountainview, Calif. at Bridge School Benefit.
