It’s been seven years since Neil Young last made a record with Crazy Horse, but we’re finally getting a follow-up to Psychedelic Pill. In a new post on his Neil Young Archives site, Young revealed that new album Colorado will be released in October, and its first single “Rainbow of Colors” will be out later this month.

“Ten new songs ranging from around 3 minutes to over 13 minutes,” Young wrote. “We hope you love this new album as much as we do.”

A documentary about the making of the album, called Mountaintop Sessions, will also be released as a companion to the record in the fall. “It is a wild one folks, no hold barred,” Young said. “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. You can be the judge of that, because Shakey Pictures’ Mountaintop Sessions masterfully shot by our cinematographer C.K. Vollick, will be released in over 100 theaters world-wide the week our album Colorado debuts, in October.”

Young also revealed his plans to release a new, 12-minute video and essay about his 1973 classic Tonight’s The Night on Wednesday (Aug. 21), writing, “I know it was a long time ago, almost 50 years, but I’m still here and it is still so fresh in my mind.”
