Earlier this month, news broke that Neil Young + Crazy Horse had plans to release Colorado, a new studio album and the first since 2012’s Psychedelic Pill, on October 25.
On Friday, a track was premiered from that record. The song, “Milky Way,” is a six-minute journey featuring some laid-back composition and Young’s unmistakable lyrics:
Word about the album, originally posted at the Neil Young Archives site:
“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 ‘Rainbow of Colors’ to you in all its ragged glory, as my original producer and life-long friend, the late David Briggs once said.
10 new songs ranging 3 minutes to over 13 minutes, will be coming your way. We hope you love this new album as much as we do. “
In addition to a new record of music, a behind-the-scenes documentary titled Mountaintop Sessions will also be released in conjunction with the album.
Here’s the track listing for Colorado:
