A month after undergoing surgery to address a brain aneurysm, veteran singer/songwriter Neil Young has returned to Nashville to resume sessions for his next album.

According to a post by Young's sister Astrid on her official Web site, longtime collaborators such as keyboardist Spooner Oldham, pedal steel guitarist Ben Keith and drummer Carl Himmel have joined Young in the studio.

The artist's medical status forced him to cancel his planned appearance last month at Canada's Juno Awards. "He's feeling good, has everything under control and is back in the saddle," Astrid Young wrote, likening the lineup of musicians to Young's acclaimed 1992 album "Harvest Moon."

The as-yet-untitled new set will be Young's first since 2003's "Greendale," which debuted at No. 22 on The Billboard 200 and has sold 204,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
