Los Angeles - Oscar-winning Silence of the Lambs director Jonathan Demme will film a two-night stand with Neil Young performing in Nashville. The footage will become a feature-length performance film dubbed Prairie Wind, to be released by Paramount Classics.

The concert will feature premiere performances of material from Young's new album, Prairie Wind, as well as classics from the artist's decades of recording.

"All my life I have been in love with film and music, and this feels like the best opportunity I have ever had to work with a fusion of the two artistic mediums," Demme told Variety.

"I am so excited to have the chance to collaborate with Neil Young on Prairie Wind, which I consider to be a real masterwork, and it is a joy to play a part in bringing Neil's music alive on film at this moment in time."

Neil Young has previously appeared in concert movies like Year of the Horse and Martin Scorsese's 1978 classic The Last Waltz. - Sapa-dpa
