(Click photo to enlarge)
Lots and lots of chatter regarding the recent PONO Launch @ SXSW with Neil Young. Congratulations to the PONO Team and their Kickstarter Campaign which exceeded their goal in less than a day.
Not that anyone likes to see anyone gloat over their victories, but somewhere, someone is saying "fuck the doubters". ;)
In the midst of all of the PONO information flooding about, lots of questions from the Neil Young fan base for what this might mean for past and future Neil Young releases. And in particular, what this might mean for the much anticipated Neil Young Archives Vol. #2.
In response, to questions about whether NYA#2 might be a PONO release, Archives Guy said in a comment here on TW:
Not to distract from the subject of this post, but in answering the NYA V2 questions...And in other Neil Young news, here's some info on a future Neil album with a 'Full-Blown Orchestra' from Neil Young's Agenda: Jack White Project, Second Book, 'Full-Blown Orchestra' Album | Billboard by Gary Graff:
At this time we are still planning on physical release for NYA V2 and yes it will be available on Pono, too in full 24/192 sound quality. I'm happy to report that we are in full on production of NYA V2 right now. Maybe I'm biased, but I think V2 might be the best one. A plethora of previously unreleased tracks.
Dunno if anyone noticed it yet, but there are some new Artist Signature Series Pono players up on the Kickstarter page today.
Young predicts he'll have new original music to release, too, but he's not saying when.That Neil. Such a slacker.
"I have new songs that I'm working on, and I haven't stopped doing that," he says. "I do it when I feel like it and I'm collecting them. And sometimes I play them live before they come out as a record, and because of the way everything is people hear them before they come out, on the Internet. But I still feel like I'm gonna make records of them."
And if Young has his way, he'll also do something symphonic in the near future.
"I'd like to make a record with a full-blown orchestra, live -- a mono recording with one mic," he explains. "I want to do something like that where we really record what happened, with one point of view and the musicians moved closer and farther away, the way it was done in the past. To me that's a challenge and it's a sound that's unbelievable, and you can't get it any other way. So I'm into doing that."
Young is also in "the final editing stages" for his second book, "Special Deluxe," a follow-up to his 2012 memoir "Waging Heavy Peace." This book, Young says, will be out this year and "focuses on my life as regards to my transportation, as regards to my love for cars. So it's a history through automobiles, and it's a history of automobiles and it's a history of the environmental impact of automobiles. And it's a projection into the future of automobiles. It has it's own agenda that develops over the book."
