Neil Young has announced a new double album and concert film called Noise and Flowers, which is set to chronicle his 2019 European summer tour with Promise of the Real.
The film will follow the nine-date tour that kicked off on June 29th in Odense, Denmark, just eight days after Young’s manager of over 50 years, Elliot Roberts, passed away.
“[Daryl Hannah] and I were on the bus, on our way to New York to catch a plane to Europe, when we got the call,” Young wrote on the Neil Young Archivers. “After returning to the funeral for our beloved Elliot, we got on the plan and left for the tour.”
“During the tour, we had a poster of Elliot on a road case, right where he always stood during our shows,” Young continued. “Everyone who was with us felt that this tour was amazing for its great vibe. The Real and I delivered for Elliot.”
The film and album are slated for an early 2021 release.
