Neil Young is making his entire archive available for streaming next month.
Young, who'll release his latest album The Visitor, on December 1st, posted on Facebook: "Hi there, December 1st will be a big day for me. The Visitor will be coming to your town. I will be going to my town. You will be able to hear me and see me. My archive will open on that same day, a place you can visit and experience every song I have ever released in the highest quality your machine will allow. It’s the way it’s supposed to be. In the beginning, everything is free. Lots of Love, Neil"
Upon announcing the archive earlier this year, Young posted: "Every single, recorded track or album I have produced is represented. It is always current. You can browse 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."
Neil Young recently recalled writing “Rockin’ In The Free World” -- a song that has come to rival any of his previous hits for its broad appeal: “I wrote that song out on the road, and I don’t really remember, except I know I wrote it all on my bus. And I thought of the first line, ‘rockin’ in the free world' -- 'keep on rockin’ in the free world,’ and I thought, ‘That really says something, but it’s such a cliche, it’s such a terrible, y’know, such an obvious thing; so then I knew I had to use it (laughs).”
