has announced his first new album with Crazy Horse in seven years, detailing Colorado, out Oct. 25 via Reprise Records, and releasing lead single “Milky Way.”
Young and Crazy Horse recorded their follow-up to 2012’s Psychedelic Pill in—you guessed it—the Rocky Mountains of Colorado, cutting their new songs “mostly live.” Young produced with John Hanlon, with additional mixing at Malibu’s Shangri-La Studios. “As with every Young release, the resultant audio fidelity is nothing short of astonishing and sounds as if one is present on the studio floor with the band during the recording,” promises a press release. Said band currently consists of Young (guitars, vocals, piano, vibes, harmonica), Nils Lofgren (guitars, vocals, pump organ), Ralph Molina (drums, vocals) and Billy Talbot (bass, vocals).
Colorado will be made available via the Neil Young Archives and all digital outlets, as well as on CD and as a three-sided, double-vinyl album set with a bonus 7” vinyl single. Said single features two non-album tracks: “Rainbow Of Colors,” a live-recorded, solo Young cut, and “Truth Kills,” a Young and Crazy Horse studio track.
