As previously reported, Earth features 13 songs that Young recorded in concert with Promise of the Real and that have been enhanced with natural sounds, including a variety of animals, birds and insects. The album originally was scheduled to be released as a two-CD set and digitally on June 17, but now will hit stores on June 24. A three-LP vinyl edition of Earth will hit stores on August 12.

In related news, the release of the restored home-video versions of Young’s 1979 concert film Rust Never Sleeps and his 1982 theatrical movie Human Highway also have been pushed back to June 24. The flicks, which will be available on DVD and Blu-ray, originally had been scheduled to be released on April 22.

Special Earth, Rust Never Sleeps and Human Highway bundles can be pre-ordered now at Young’s official online store.
