Neil Young will keep on rocking with Colorado, his new album with Crazy Horse which is now set for release this October. 

Colorado will be stacked with ten songs “ranging from around 3 minutes to over 13 minutes,” reads an update posted on the Neil Young Archives, and is led by “Rainbow Of Colors,” due to drop later this month.    

The new set will be released in a range of formats, including vinyl, and it’ll be accompanied by a documentary about the making of the album called Mountaintop Sessions, shot by cinematographer C.K. Vollick. “It’s a wild one, folks, no holds barred,” reads Young’s message

“I don’t think a film about this subject with the openness and intensity we have captured has ever been seen,” the Hall of Famer enthuses.

We knew Colorado was coming. And it’s one of a slew of creative priorities for the Canadian rock legend, who earlier this month put touring obligations on ice so he could instead focus on working across 15 career-spanning film projects.

Mountaintop Sessions will be released in over 100 theaters around the globe in the week of the album release, the statement continues. 

Young's last LP with Crazy Horse, his longtime backing band, was Psychedelic Pill, which hit No. 8 on the Billboard 200 after its release in 2012.
