Freedom is an album by Neil Young, released in 1989.
Freedom relaunched Neil Young's career, after a mostly unsuccessful decade. After many arguments (and a lawsuit), Young left Geffen Records and returned to his original label, Reprise, in 1988 with This Note's for You. Freedom, however, brought about a new, critical and commercially successful album in the mold of his 1979 classic album, Rust Never Sleeps. Both albums consist of live songs with the audience track mainly removed. Freedom also contains one song, "Rockin' in the Free World", bookending the album in acoustic and electric variants, a stylistic choice previously featured on Rust Never Sleeps. "Rockin' in the Free World" became, despite its anti-George Bush lyrics and intentions, the defacto anthems of the collapse of communism (specifically the Fall of the Berlin Wall) due to its repeated chorus of 'Keep on Rockin' in the Free World'
Several of the songs on Freedom previously appeared on the Japan and Australia-only EP Eldorado.
An edited cut of the electric version of "Rockin' in The Free World" was also used over the final credits of Michael Moore's film Fahrenheit 9/11, and the song was rereleased as a single at the time of the film's release.
