Not content with working on his own music-streaming service as a successor to Pono Music, Neil Young has unveiled an archives site spanning his entire career so far.
“We have attempted to highlight the creative process and the creators… We have done our best to find all of the background pertinent to this music,” wrote Young in a note posted for fans.
“The NYA Timeline shows you when and how the music was made. Every single, recorded track or album I have produced is represented. It is always current. You can browse through the music I made between today’s date and 1963, when I made my first recording in Canada and it was released as a 45 RPM single.”
Young is making the music available to stream too, using the Xstream Music hi-res format by OraStream “to avoid the lack of high audio quality presented by today’s streaming technology”.
Xstream is also the brand for Young’s proposed new streaming service, for which OraStream is also the technology partner. Young announced details of that plus his ambitions for the web archive in April this year.
