Neil Young to premiere Harvest Time documentary in cinemas

Neil Young will premiere a documentary about his 1972 album, “Harvest”, in cinemas worldwide on December 1.

As part of the 50th anniversary celebrations of Young’s legendary record, “Harvest Time” is a never-before seen fan piece including footage from Northern California, London, and Nashville, during the creation of the album.

Created between January and September 1971, this docu-film takes viewers on an intimate journey to Young's Broken Arrow Ranch in Northern California for the "Harvest Barn" sessions, to London for an iconic performance with the London Symphony Orchestra, and to Nashville where the then-20-something rocker worked on various tracks of this signature album.

Performance and rehearsal content is intertwined into creative storytelling and includes most of the tracks from album Harvest (released in 1972) including "Heart of Gold," "A Man Needs A Maid," "Alabama," and "Old Man."

"This is a big album for me,” says Young. “50 years ago. I was 24, maybe 23 and this album made a big difference in my life. I played with some great friends, and it's really cool that that this album has lasted so long. I had a great time and now when I listen to it, I think I was really just lucky to be there. I hope you enjoy this story, which is ‘Harvest Time’, and which talks about everything that happened. And now people all around the world can see it at the movies."

The cinema premiere – which begins with a personal introduction from Young about the film and album – syncs up with the release of an expanded 50th anniversary edition of “Harvest” on December 2.

Tickets for “Neil Young: Harvest Time” will go on sale beginning Thursday, November 10; for details, visit
