Following 2019’s “Still Young”, frequent collaborators and friends Jeff Rosenstock & Laura Stevenson have returned with “Younger Still”, their 2nd 4-song EP of Neil Young covers. This time, the duo put their spin on classics “Comes a Time,” and “Everybody Knows This is Nowhere,” alongside deeper cuts like “Razor Love” and “Hey Babe.”

The duo originally started working on a new EP in 2019, recording two of its four songs in Rosenstock’s apartment in Brooklyn before moving to Los Angeles. As the events of 2020 & the global pandemic unfolded, the EP was never fully realized and both musicians focused on their respective solo projects. Rosenstock released the critically acclaimed album “No Dream” and not-critically-acclaimed 2020 “Dump” in 2020 and continued focusing on writing and recording music for the Emmy-nominated Cartoon Network series, Craig of the Creek. While across the country in NY, Stevenson meanwhile was busy as well. She gave birth to her first child and released her beautiful self-titled sixth album in 2021. Prior to this, Stevenson has been featured in outlets such as Pitchfork, SPIN, and NPR (Tiny Desk) and has toured with artists such as Lucy Dacus, The Hold Steady, and others.

As soon as both of their intense schedules allowed, Stevenson hopped on a plane in the summer of 2022 and the duo got back together at Rosenstock’s home in Los Angeles to record four different songs for a whole new EP in the basement. Rosenstock & Stevenson will be hitting the road for a handful of intimate shows together in November and December, playing Neil Young covers and selects from both of their vast catalogs. 

“Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere” is taken from Jeff Rosenstock & Laura Stevenson’s new Neil Young covers EP, “Younger Still”, out November 3rd, 2022 via Polyvinyl Records.
