Neil Young wears a lot of hats, and recently, he traded in his signature brimmed hat for an acting one, starring in the upcoming western movie called Paradox.

The Darryl Hannah-directed film is set to premiere at this year’s SXSW Film Festival, which begins March 9 in Austin, TX.

Described as a “fat-fetched, whimsical western tale of music and love,” the film will also feature a cast of Austin’s own Willie Nelson and his sons Lukas and Micah of Promise of the Real, a band that often backs Young in concert. The band’s music, as well as Young’s, will also have a role in the film, so the soundtrack will be incredible no doubt.

Neil Young and Promise of the Real released their latest album, The Visitor, at the end of 2017. As for 2018, Young will likely tour later this year in addition to making good on his promise on several archival releases, reports Rolling Stone.
