It’s no secret that director Jonathan Demme (Philadelphia, Silence of the Lambs, Rachel Getting Married) is a huge Neil Young fan. He’s already made two Neil Young films in the past six years-2006’s Heart of Gold and 2009’s Neil Young Trunk Show-and later this year he’ll be releasing a third. Neil Young Journeys will follow the legendary folk rocker as he visits his boyhood home in North Ontario followed by a performance at Massey Hall in Toronto. Massey Hall, of course, was where Young’s acclaimed live album Live at Massey Hall took place.
It will be a big summer for Neil Young and his fans. Americana, the album of electrified folk standards he recorded with Crazy Horse, will be released on June 5, and the band is scheduled to play a few select dates as well, including a stop at Outside Lands in San Francisco. They were also recently confirmed to co-headline the Voodoo Music and Arts Experience in New Orleans. Neil Young Journeys is set to be released on June 29. Watch the trailer below.
