Neil Young Announces New Crazy Horse Album COLORADO


Neil Young’s last album release was nearly two years ago in 2017 and his latest LP with his Crazy Horse band, Psychedelic Pill, came out in 2012.

Now a long-awaited new crazy horse album called COLORADO will be out this October and according to the Neil Young Archives website, the first single is out next month.


The new song is called “Rainbow Of Colors” one of ten tracks “ranging from around 3 minutes to over 13 minutes.”

The release of COLORADO will co-inside with the release of a documentary about the making of the album called Mountaintop Sessions. The documentary is directed by C.K. Vollick.

According to an announcement from Neil himself he tells his fans, “We are excited here at NYA! The first track from COLORADO, our next Crazy Horse album, is coming out this month. Billy, Ralphie, Nils and I are all very happy to bring this song ‘Rainbow of Colors’ to you in all its ragged glory.”

“As my original producer and life-long friend, the late David Briggs once said. 113 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”.

Young goes on to tell us more about his work on ‘Mountaintop Sessions’, the documentary film about the making of COLORADO:

“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”.

Shakey Pictures’ ‘Mountaintop Sessions’ skillfully shot by cinematographer C.K. Vollick, goes out world-wide the week the album COLORADO debuts, in October.

Spin reports that the album will also feature as album of the week on Wednesday’s ‘Tonight’s the Night’. The man himself also tells his fans to watch out for a never before seen video, which will feature the camera of David Briggs!

“It will be released in the NYA Times-Contrarian for your viewing, along with an ‘Album of the Week’ story I have written for you. 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! I know it was a long time ago, almost 5o 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! Ny”
