After the Gold Rush is the third studio album by Canadian singer-songwriter Neil Young, released in August 1970 on Reprise Records. It was one of the four high-profile albums released by each member of folk rock collective Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young in the wake of their chart-topping 1970 album Déjà Vu. After the Gold Rush peaked at number eight on the Billboard Top Pop Albums chart; the two singles taken from the album, "Only Love Can Break Your Heart" and "When You Dance I Can Really Love", made it to number 33 and number 93 respectively on the Billboard Hot 100.

Neil Young's third solo album was released during a prolific period of his career, with the artist having recorded two solo albums and Déjà Vu with Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young in less than a year; after being sidelined with a back injury, he would wait until 1972 for his subsequent LP Harvest, which would make Young a household name. Although his work with Buffalo Springfield had shown him experimenting with a variety of musical styles, on Gold Rush Young continued the mix of hard rock with the country and folk-flavored acoustic approaches from CSNY and on 1969's Everybody Knows This is Nowhere.
