A spectacular live recording of Neil Young performing in 1968, made just before the release of his very first solo album, is about to be made available for the first time ever. Sugar Mountain won't be out until December, but we've got the title track for you here as a sneak preview. We've also got an exclusive preview of new music from Sweden's Loney, Dear. The new album, Dear John, is due out in January, but you can hear the track "Airport Surroundings" now. Also on this edition of All Songs Considered: Nigerian musician Asa, legendary African guitarist Franco, ringtone composer Max Richter, and the Portland, Ore. duo Musee Mecanique.
