Neil Young dusts off the title track from his 2016 studio album Peace Trail in the latest music video from his 2018 film "Paradox." Originally the second single from the legendary Canuck folk-rocker's 36th solo studio album, the song is one of 21 tracks included on the upcoming "Paradox" soundtrack, which will be released April 20 via Reprise.
The two-time Rock and Roll of Famer unveiled the extended 7:07 minute clip on March 30 via YouTube, following the film's premiere at the 2018 SXSW Film Festival South on March 15. Both the movie and the music video are written and directed by Young's girlfriend, actress Daryl Hannah, and cast Young in the starring role along with his backing band Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real.
The clip combines footage rehearsal footage in a tent, nature shots and footage from the two-time Grammy winner's 2016 appearance at Desert Trip. Surreal images of a cowboy floating in the sky and a young woman on swing holding a pink umbrella flash across the screen as Young sings, “Up in the rainbow teepee sky/No one's looking down on you or I/That's just a mirror in your eye.”
Fans can check out the film "Paradox" during its current run on Netflix. The soundtrack is available for preorder here in digital, CD, and vinyl formats. Check out the new music video for “Peace Trail” above.
The ex-Buffalo Springfield star was recently announced among the headliners on June 23 in Pasadena, Calif., at Arroyo Seco Weekend, as well as on July 6 in Quebec City, P.Q., at Quebec City Summer Festival. U.S. fans can catch Young in action at his next live appearance, scheduled for April 21 in Los Angeles at Pantages Theatre as part of former bandmate Stephen Stills' annual Light Up the Blues benefit concert.
