Now available on YouTube, ‘BARN’ is a revealing and beautiful documentary about the making of the current critically acclaimed Neil Young with Crazy Horse album that shares the same title.
Directed by Daryl Hannah (dhlovelife), the ‘BARN’ documentary film catches a rare intimate glimpse of this legendary band as they make music in a restored 19th century log barn under the full moon. It captures Neil and the Horse in an organic way, their easy irreverent humour, their brotherhood, and of course their music, as it was created.
‘BARN’ intentionally lingers on single shots for entire songs, showing there are no tricks, revealing the raw, organic and spontaneous process of the music bursting to life from unexpected moments. Exquisite changes of light and weather dance in the remote meadow where the barn sits, adding a sweet, mystical magic as the music thumps, reverberates and echoes. The film is infused with the gratitude and joy that permeated the whole experience.
The ‘BARN’ album was produced by The Volume Dealers – Neil Young and Niko Bolas – and made an instant, overwhelming impact on critics and fans around the world when it was released in December. ‘BARN’ entered Billboard’s Top Album Sales chart at #9, and it debuted at #16 on the UK’s Official Album Chart.
‘BARN’ is available on vinyl, CD, cassette, and digitally, while the deluxe edition packages the LP, CD, and Blu-ray documentary film with six behind-the-scenes photos. The documentary is also available to order as a stand-alone Blu-ray HERE.
