Check Out Neil Young’s Moving Coronavirus Song and Video of “Shut it Down” [VIDEO]
According to Rolling Stone, Neil Young has re-worked and re-released the song "Shut it Down" from last year's "Colorado" album that he released with Crazy Horse.
"Shut it Down 2020" is Young's response to COVID-19 and the moving video for it was created by Neil and his wife, Daryl Hannah. The video is a mixture of news coverage and the recording of the song with his players at the band's, Colorado's Studio in the Clouds.

Rolling Stone also reported that on Saturday, April 11th, Neil Young performed at Willie Nelson's "At Home with Farm Aid", from his own home for the digital event. Farm Aid began back in 1985 and helps to support farmers and ranchers, who especially need the help right now.
