Diamantenräuber - Love's Comin'.
Hitchhiker is a studio album by Canadian singer-songwriter Neil Young, issued September 8, 2017 on Reprise Records. It is the ninth release in Young's ongoing archival release series and the first of the Special Release series. Co-produced by Young and David Briggs with post-production from John Hanlon, the album was originally recorded on August 11, 1976 at Indigo Ranch Recording Studio in Malibu, California.
Instead, Hitchhiker holds together as a mood piece, an album where Young slowly reckons with a new dawn after surviving a hectic mid-'70s.

Hitchhiker comes from a particularly fertile period for Young. In addition to classics like On the Beach, Tonight's the Night and Zuma, which were released in the two years leading up to it, other legendary albums - like Homegrown and Chrome Dreams - were recorded and shelved from around this time. Hitchhiker sounds more like a collection of demos rather than an actual album (which is pretty much the case), but there's no denying how great many of these songs are.
Neil Young's 1976 acoustic album 'Hitchhiker' will finally get an official release. On August 11th, 1976, Neil Young walked into Indigo Studios in Malibu and recorded 10 songs with his acoustic guitar. Young recorded Hitchhiker with David Briggs, who helped produce many of Young’s most famous albums, including Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere, After the Gold Rush and On the Beach. John Hanlon, another long-time collaborator, contributed some post-production to the original Malibu recordings. Even as Young unearths old material from 1976, he’s been busily creating new music as well.
Recorded over one night in 1976, Hitchhiker is an acoustic snapshot of Neil Young’s creative process, captured at a time when he was crafting music strong enough to last his whole career. Recorded over one night in 1976, Hitchhiker is an acoustic snapshot of Neil Young’s creative process, captured at a time when he was crafting music strong enough to last his whole career. One night in Malibu in the summer of ’76, Neil Young drove a Cadillac convertible to Indigo Ranch Studios and recorded an album called Hitchhiker. Its ten songs were united by sparse arrangements and a tenuous grasp of time.

Eight years later, with Young’s personal life in turmoil, the two booked Malibu’s Indigo Ranch Studios (with only the actor Dean Stockwell looking on) to record Hitchhiker, a solo acoustic album that was never released until today. The album contains the original versions of some of Young’s best-loved songs as well as two previously unreleased tracks. Harvest, released in 1972, turned Neil Young into a household name.
