Neil Young and his longtime collaborators Crazy Horse have released “Milky Way,” their first single in seven years.
If the sleepy love song sounds familiar, that’s because Young has performed it live in concert over the past few months—either solo acoustically or with Lukas Nelson’s backing band, Promise of the Real. However, the official studio rendition is the first time Crazy Horse have put their own spin on the romantic tune.
“Milky Way” is a preview of the group’s upcoming record Colorado, due out October 25. The album will be released alongside a documentary titled Mountaintop Sessions which chronicles the LP’s recording process.
“It’s a wild one folks,” Young wrote on his website. “You will see the whole process just as it went down! [Warts] and all! I don’t think a film about this subject with the openness and intensity we have captured has ever been seen.”
