Rock veteran Neil Young is expanding his writing resume by penning a science fiction novel.

The Like a Hurricane hitmaker is due to release his second memoir, the follow-up to 2012's Waging Heavy Peace, later this year (14) and he also has a second literary project in the pipeline.

He has declined to give a possible release date or any further details about the novel but has described it as "f**king weird", reports Uncut magazine.
