Neil Young announces new Crazy Horse album, documentary

Colorado will be available in October

Neil Young has announced that he’s about to release a new Crazy Horse album in October called Colorado. The project will contain ten new songs ranging from around three minutes to 13 minutes each. The album’s first single, “Rainbow of Colors,” will be released later this month.

Colorado will be released on CD and streaming services. A double vinyl edition featuring three sides and an exclusive two-sided 7″ single containing songs not on the album will also be offered.

Young confirms a documentary called Mountaintop Sessions about the making of the album is also nearing completion.

“It is a wild one folks, no holds barred,” the rocker states. “You will see the whole process just as it went down! Worts and all! I don’t think a film about this subject with the openness and intensity we have captures has ever been seen. You can be the judge of that, because Shakey Pictures’ Mountaintop Sessions masterfully shot by cinematographer C.K. Vollick, will be released in over 100 theaters world-wide the week our album Colorado, debuts in October.”

No other details about the projects have been announced as of press time.

Young shares that on Wednesday (Aug 21st), Tonight’s The Night will be the “Album of the Week” with a never-before-seen video on his Neil Young Archives website. Young says he’s written a story to accompany the feature that will take fans deeper into the project than ever before.

“With the 12-minute ‘Tonight’s The Night’ video and that story, you should have a more clear look at Tonight’s The Night than you have ever had in the history of this recording!” the singer/songwriter shares. “I know it was a long time ago, almost 50 years, but I’m still here and it is still so fresh in my mind. That’s what this Archive is about, bringing it home to you. I love the music, the way we played it and what it was about, as well as all the great people who were part of making it. Maybe you are one of them. I hope you love it like I do, along with the good people at Reprise [Records]!”
