"Harvest Moon" is a country-rock album by Neil Young, released in 1992. Due to the abundance of musicians appearing on it who also appeared on his 1972 album "Harvest", "Harvest Moon" is considered a pseudo-sequel to that album.

Recovering from tinnitus that had come about after the recording of 1990's "Ragged Glory" and its subsequent tour (which produced 1991's "Weld" and "Arc"), Young was determined to return to the studio. Returning to Nashville and joining up with compatriots like Ben Keith, Young put down the electric guitar, returning to the acoustic guitar, piano and banjo that had dominated albums such as "Harvest", "Comes a Time" and "Old Ways".

Among the track highlights are the title track, featuring the percussive sweeping of a broom, a song for which Young made a rare music video. An ode to his dog, Elvis, on "Old King" found Young plucking a banjo, while he loved, found and lost throughout songs such as "From Hank to Hendrix" and "Such a Woman".

Ann Wilson, lead singer of Heart, recorded a cover version of the song "War of Man" for her 2007 solo release "Hope & Glory" with Alison Krauss. Ben Gibbard, lead singer of Death Cab for Cutie, sang a live cover of "Harvest Moon" on May 7th, 2007 at a show in Somerville, Mass.

The album earned the 1994 Juno Award for album of the year.
