Neil Young has released nearly three dozen studio albums as a solo artist and with other artists throughout his career. Now the “Love Earth” singer’s discography is growing yet again. On Friday, October 20, he took to social media to announce that he would share tracks from his vault.
Young’s forthcoming album, Before & After, is slated to be dropped on December 8. In a statement he teased what fans can expect from IT. “The feeling is captured, not in pieces, but as a whole piece — designed to be listened to that way,” he wrote. “This music presentation defies shuffling, digital organization, and separation only for listening. That says it all.”
Although Before & After will feature several reworked versions of some of Young’s more obscure songs, he guarantees fans will enjoy it. “Sometimes buried by hits, these are songs from my life 1966-2022, newly recorded, in a music montage with no beginnings or endings,” he wrote on X.
