Though it was officially launched in December 2017, Neil Young’s online archive – shorthanded as NYA – will be expanded this June to include more content from the singer-songwriter as well as a paid subscription model.
The singer announced the news via Facebook, explaining that he will condense his entire online presence to the NYA, calling it a place “made for you to get the best of me.”
“I wanted a place where I could hear my music from the very beginning, from the high school bands I was in, to my latest recordings-audio and visual,” Young explained in the statement. “I wanted to be able to hear it all, all the sound, all the sound I heard when I made those records and poured my heart and soul into every one, the good and the bad, the great and the ‘should be gone’. They are all there in the new place.”
He also specifies that he will post on the NYA regularly, using it as a forum for informal writings and choosing a “song of the day.” It will also be the first place where fans can get access to tickets and the occasional live stream.
Starting June 1, memberships for NYA will available for $1.99 a month, or $19.99 per year. However, Young is sure to mention that “Parts of NYA will always be free.”
