New York-based indie distributor Abramorama has inked a deal with Shakey Pictures and Reprise/Warner Records to release Neil Young’s Mountaintop in North America, Europe and South America.

The 92-minute film offers an “unfiltered look” at Neil Young and Crazy Horse as the band creates its first album in seven years.

Titled Colorado, the album is recorded in the state’s Rocky Mountains. Neil Young and Crazy House first started working together 50 years ago, with their most recent release being 2012′s Psychedelic Pill.

The partnership is the 13th time Abramorama has collaborated with Bernard Shakey, Young’s film-making pseudonym.

“The only thing better than working on a Bernard Shakey film is working on another Bernard Shakey film,” Abramorama CEO Richard Abramowitz said in a statement. “Providing fans around the world with the opportunity to see how Neil and the band put it all together is a particularly rare and exciting experience.”

Mountaintop is produced by Bernard Shakey and dhlovelife film. Gary Ward serves as executive producer.

The film will be released in theaters across North America on Oct. 22 and in Europe and South America on Nov. 18.
