Published Aug 01, 2019Between releasing old material, recording new material, authoring books and more, Neil Young appears to be a perpetually busy man. Now, he's announced he's clearing his touring schedule to focus on a number of film projects.
In a post on his Neil Young Archives website, the songwriter revealed that he has postponed all but two live dates in 2019 for the slate of film projects.
"We will be in the editing suites for the duration of 2019," Young wrote on the site. "Thanks for coming to our shows! We plan to be back in 2020!"
Young also posted an incomplete list of the film projects he's set to work on. Among them are the animated companion film for his 1982 album Trans, and film on the sessions for his forthcoming album with Crazy Horse, now named Colorado.
In a second post concerning Colorado, Young wrote that the album is dedicated to late manager Elliot Roberts. "Elliot love this record. He said "It's the songs," Young wrote. "As we release this record, you will be with us in spirit. Colorado is a very special one. Nils Lofgren is back in Crazy Horse again and the feeling is there."
None of the listed films have received release dates. Young will play a charity show in Lakes Hughes, California on September 14 and Farm Aid in East Troy, Wisconsin on September 21.
Young was set to tour with Crazy Horse this year in support of Colorado, which is expected to see release this year. It will mark Young's first album with his iconic backing band since 2012's Psychedelic Pill.
