Neil Young may have sung about being "The Loner," but a month after filing for divorce from his wife of 36 years, he looked quite cozy out with Daryl Hannah.

The 68-year-old music legend and the Splash star, 53, appeared as tight as could be walking arm in arm down the street in Thousand Oaks, California, on Tuesday. The actress and activist was dressed down in a floral adorned top, jeans, and sandals and kept a hand on Young, in a casual all-black outfit, every step of the way.

Hannah gave him a kiss, held onto his wrist, and rested her head on his shoulder as they walked. Young, who couldn't be missed with his signature sideburns, grinned when she smooched him.

While a rep for Young did not respond to Yahoo's request for comment and a spokesperson for Hannah could not be reached, a source told People magazine,"They've been dating for months," adding that Young's marriage had recently been troubled. "They've taken no effort to even hide it. He recorded a new album a few weeks ago, and she was on Skype the entire time, giving him feedback on every take. He even told people in the studio she was his 'girlfriend.'"

Love was on Hannah's mind the day after these photos were snapped. She posted a photo of Icelandic horses on Instagram, writing in part, "Love comes in many colors…"

It was revealed on Aug. 26 that Young had quietly filed for divorce from his wife of nearly four decades and musical collaborator, Pegi Young, in late July. Around that time, a commenter on the blog BrooklynVegan first floated the idea of a Young-Hannah coupling, writing, "Rumor has it Neil is dating Daryl Hannah now."

Hannah — who has dated several musicians, including Jackson Browne, Wallflowers keyboardist Rami Jaffee, and, if the rumors are true, Mick Jagger (she also famously dated non-musician John F. Kennedy Jr.) — has actually been with Young on multiple occasions over the last 13 months. In December, APTN National News ran a story about a six and a-half-hour road trip Young and Hannah took in his bioelectric 1959 Lincoln last August. It was related to work they were doing with the Athabasca Chipewyan First Nation.

Then in April of this year, Young and Hannah took part in a protest in Washington, D.C. during which they marched together with the Cowboy and Indian Alliance and protested the Keystone XL pipeline.

Not everyone seems thrilled with the match. Young's one-time musical partner, David Crosby (of Crosby, Still, Nash, and Young) suggested that Hannah was behind Young's divorce.

"I happen to know that he's hanging out with somebody that's a purely poisonous predator now," Crosby said during an interview with the Idaho Statesman on Sunday. "And that's karma. He's gonna get hurt. But I understand why it happened. I'm just sad about it. I'm always sad when I see love tossed in the gutter."

So while the new pairing may not be a popular one, it appears to be going strong. And these pictures indicate that they like each other — a lot.
