Neil Young, who is among the performers at the forthcoming Farm Aid show at Alpine Valley next month, has announced he's releasing a new album with Crazy Horse in October. Called Colorado, the 10-track studio album will feature the lineup of Nils Lofgren, Billy Talbot, and Ralph Molina. They recorded the album with Young's co-producer, John Hanlon, in Telluride earlier this year. Tellride is, of course, in Colorado.
Young revealed that the album's first single, called “Rainbow Of Colors,” will be out later this month, according to a post on NeilYoungArchives.com.
Young also wrote on that site about Colorado, “10 new songs ranging from around 3 minutes to over 13 minutes, will be coming your way. We hope you love this new album as much as we do.”
He also mentioned a film they did during the sessions that document the making of the album. The film, called "Mountaintop Sessions," will be released at over one hundred theaters the same week Colorado gets released. As Young notes about the film, “It is a wild one folks, no holds barred. 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 captured has ever been seen.”
We'll see about that! Colorado will be issued via Reprise Records on CD, double Vinyl and through streaming services. Vinyl fans get a little extra: with their purchase, they'll get three sides (hence the double) plus a 7″ exclusive two-sided single that won’t be included on the album.
