On October 25, Neil Young & Crazy Horse will release a studio album entitled Colorado through Reprise Records. Young previewed the album by posting the track “Rainbow Of Colors” to his Neil Young Archives website (NYA) for subscribers.

Neil had originally targeted “Rainbow Of Colors” as the 10-track LP’s lead single as per a note posted a month ago on NYA. However, “Milky Way” was the first song from Colorado released.

Young, bassist Billy Talbot, drummer Ralph Molina and multi-instrumentalist Nils Lofgren recorded Colorado this past spring in Telluride at Studio In The Clouds with co-producer John Hanlon. “Billy, Ralphie, Nils and I are very happy to bring this song ‘Rainbow Of Colors’ to you in all its ragged glory, as my original producer and life-long friend, the late David Briggs once said,” Young wrote on NYA. “10 new songs ranging from around 3 minutes to over 13 minutes, will be coming your way. We hope you love this new album as much as we do.”

The 73-year-old musician debuted the live rendition of “Rainbow Of Colors” on May 17 in Portland, Oregon during a solo concert. He went on to perform the song again the next night and with Promise Of The Real at the four May concerts that followed. NYA subscribers can hear the studio version from Colorado here.
