Fresh off a homecoming concert in an old high school auditorium in Brooklyn, Neil Diamond has made his new album available to stream online.

Melody Road, Diamond’s new album, is now available via NPR’s First Listen program prior to its full release next week.

The album, his 32nd, marks Diamond’s first as a Capitol Records artist and his first album of new material since 2008’s Home Before Dark. It marks an idea that finally came to fruition: Diamond’s collaboration with producer Don Was, who called the singer 25 years ago to talk making a record.

The result is a return to the 73-year-old’s fuller-sounding, instrumentation-rich releases following stripped-down affairs in the 2000s produced by Rick Rubin. Jacknife Lee also collaborated with Diamond on Melody Road in a producer role.
