Greendale is the twenty-sixth studio album by Neil Young. Young and Crazy Horse's Greendale, a 10-song rock opera, is set in a fictional California seaside town.
Greendale combines numerous themes on corruption, environmentalism and mass media consolidation.
The CD was originally released with a DVD of live "Neil-only" acoustic performance of the Greendale material from Vicar Street, Dublin, Ireland. In 2004, the CD was released with a new DVD containing a live performance of Neil Young and Crazy Horse. A DVD-Audio version was also released, with both Advanced Resolution Stereo and 5.1 Surround sound mixes, and a video of "Devil's Sidewalk" from the film. In late 2004, the feature length DVD with actors lip-synching the material was released.
Greendale was the last Neil Young album to feature Crazy Horse until 2012's Americana, and his ninth with that band.
