Neil Young Discusses His New Album, Trump, Future of Pono
The entire interview with Young is available on the latest episode of podcast, Rolling Stone Music Now.
Regarding future work: "I've got a lot to do without touring,” says Young, who's working on a TV show about the cross-country journey of his electric car and writing another book (this one may be fiction). But primarily, he says, “I'm actually just focusing now on recordings for awhile."
Regarding PONO: "We're pushing towards getting a presence in phones," says Young (though iPhones' internal chips are not currently compatible with higher-than-CD-quality sound). He's working with a Singaporean company on a method to "maintain our quality level when we go to streaming."
Regarding Crazy Horse and CSNY: "Billy's in great shape, he's fine," says Young, promising to work his way back to the band. "Crazy Horse has a cycle. If you look at Crazy Horse's history and when Crazy Horse played and when they didn't play, you can see that we're still in the pocket."
When he's reminded that Crosby, Stills Nash and Young have a 50th anniversary coming up, he responds with savage sarcasm: "Oh, yeah, there's a huge anniversary coming up. Huge. It's terrific! I love it!" At the same time, he won't rule out a reunion with that group, who last played together in 2013. "Anything is possible," he says.
