Blue Rider PressA new book by Neil Young called Special Deluxe: A Memoir of Life and Cars will be published on October 14. As its title suggests, the tome features the folk-rock legend discussing his passion for cars, while sharing stories about his eventful life and career and the different automobiles he’s owned.

In the book, Young delves into his love for large vintage cars and his realization of the negative impact such vehicles can have on the environment. Special Deluxe also will feature a look at Lincvolt, the clean-running modified electric car he helped develop, and his quest to educate people on the importance of the use of such clean-energy vehicles.

In addition to Young’s various musings and tales, Special Deluxe will include a number of pieces of original art he created.

The book is a follow-up to Young’s 2012 memoir, Waging Heavy Peace, which reached #2 on The New York Times Hardcover Nonfiction Best Sellers list. Special Deluxe will be available as a hardcover book, a downloadable audiobook and a CD.
