In Jonathan Demme’s documentary Neil Young Journeys, the Silence of the Lambs filmmaker follows Young through his Ontario hometown and onward to a show in Toronto, all while talking about life and music during a ride in Young’s 1956 Ford Crown Victoria.
Young is no stranger to the world of film – he’s had several documentaries made about his work, including Neil Young: Heart of Gold and Neil Young: Silver and Gold, which Demme and producing partner Elliot Rabinowitz also teamed up on, plus his scripted environmental treatise, Greendale.
Journeys will be out Oct. 16 on DVD and Blu-ray from Sony Home Entertainment. In the meantime, take a listen to two previously unreleased tracks, exclusive to EW, below: “You Never Call” and “Leia.” The first is a soulful, sad, bluesy track; the second is more lively, playful one.
Back in January, when Neil Young Journeys was first released at Sundance, EW’s Adam Vary spoke with the musician and director Demme about making the film. Watch their interview below for more on the project.
