Credit: Julie GarnerNeil Young just released a live album called Earth in June, but the prolific folk-rock legend already has completed a new studio project that’s scheduled to hit stores on December 2.

Rolling Stone reports that the album is titled Peace Trail and is a mostly acoustic collection of tunes that Young recorded at producer Rick Rubin‘s Shangri-la Studios in Malibu, California.

Peace Trail features 10 tracks, and includes contributions from famed session drummer Jim Keltner and bassist Paul Bushnell, whose expansive resume includes recordings by John Fogerty, Elton John, Rod Stewart and Phil Collins. The album was co-produced by Young and John Hanlon, who has worked with Neil on most of his records over the last five years.

Among the tracks on Peace Trail is “Indian Givers,” a tune that Young debuted in September via a video posted on his official YouTube channel. The song rails against the Dakota Access Pipeline, which is being built to carry oil from North Dakota to Illinois through land that many Native Americans consider sacred. The album also includes several songs that Neil has been playing at his recent concerts with Promise of the Real, including the title track, “Show Me,” “Texas Rangers” and “Terrorist Suicide Hang Gliders.”

Peace Trail will be available for pre-order soon at Young’s online store and at the Pono Music Store. It will be available in various digital formats, as well as on CD and cassette. According to Rolling Stone, a vinyl version also will be released in January.
