COVER: NEW EP: "The Times" by Neil Young | NYA

"The Times" by Neil Young

Here is the cover for "The Times" by Neil Young. While no track list has been announced as of yet, it will include "Lookin' For A Leader" and presumably Neil Young's recent cover of Bob Dylan's "The Times They Are A-Changin'" from the PORCH EPISODE.

RELEASE DATE: 9/18/2020

Also, Neil has written fans a letter outlining many forthcoming updates to NYA, so look for that in your mailbox.  He says that:

" There is some big news coming in the next 10 days."

Admittedly, we did smile at his concluding line:
"Our world, too, is going through a giant cultural shift, with old norms giving way to new values."

Maybe we'll have to update our hastag #BigShift to #GiantShift?!

More on, Neil Young new EP titled "The Times" .

Also, more on Neil Young's PORCH EPISODE.

"Lookin' for a Leader" (2020)

My birthday is on 9/16, I'll receive a gift from Neil this year :-)

I do love NYA and am a subscriber. Still, every time I log on it is a fight to find things, interact with it, and get things to stream consistently. Even logging in I can sometimes watch that spinning thing for far too long. For example, this letter, I never got it even though I am subscribed to e-mails and have the app. After a lot of clicking I find my settings and see I am subscribed for e-mails but never get any. I then go to the very frustrating NYA Times Contrarian in search of the content and do not find it there. This part of the site is especially maddening, some buttons seem to open multiple pages, sometimes you click on a page and nothing happens. New videos are sometimes embedded, sometimes in the Hearse, and sometimes do not seem to be linked from where they are mentioned. The timeline can be quite a fight too. Ultimately it is all a ragged Neil experience, which is something I accept from him, but sadly the tech world is one place were even fans patience is limited. I actually get my news of what is happening more from this blog, so thanks. Though I am still left wondering what all these new Neil releases are!

I love the NYAS site and don’t have all these supposed issues that others have.

Anyone know what happened with Archives Vol. 2, Greendale live, etc.? (I know, I know, it's Neil Time.) A lot of the release dates have come and gone already this year but I don't see anything online about them being postponed, let alone about new release dates. Did I just write down the release dates wrong?

At 7/31/2020 08:22:00 PM, Blogger Dan Swan said...

@ buddyobush : According to the NYA Timeline as of today (July 31st). Young Shakespeare : 1/29/21, Rust Bucket : 12/ 04/20, Return to Greendale : 11/06/20, Archives Volume Two : 11/06/20, The Times EP 9/18/20. Time will tell, but this is the most current release dates.

Peace 🙏

Awesome, thank you Dan S.!

@Dan--Good to know. I especially look forward to Return to Greendale. A good chance for me to get reacquainted with the original album and movie, I hope.

Also, of course... The Times. How could Neil not have something to say at this moment? He's been so in tune with the here and now for so long, and so rarely (ever?) lost for words. And bless him for realizing there's an audience beyond those who are currently able to be NYA subscribers.

@ Dan - hmm. just re-checked and only seeing Archives Volume Two : 11/06/20 on timeline?

Our timeline view doesn't even show Homegrown as released in 2020?

what gives? Are you seeing these on a mobile or desktop?

At 8/02/2020 04:49:00 PM, Blogger Dan Swan said...


At 8/03/2020 03:47:00 AM, Blogger Dionys said...

It's not that difficult to sort out, at least in the current desktop version. Archival stand alone releases such as Homegrown (1974), Return to Greendale (2003), Young Shakespeare (1970), Rustbucket (1990) appear in the year they were created. New releases such as The Times or Archives 2 appear under 2020. So there are three different systematic concepts. There is the old physical product archive (NYA Vol.1 and hopefully 2). There is the website concept with two and a half conflicting systems: A timeline that sticks to the concept of creation date, a concept of release date (books and video content) and again NYA Vol.1 and Vol.2 which contain releases that are found under their original creation dates as stand alone releases. Half a century of creativity make for a hell of a labyrinth. I wish I had my autobiographical date organized that well.

Thank You Dionys. I hadn't figured that out but it makes sense.

At 8/03/2020 09:49:00 AM, Blogger thrasher said...

@ Dionys - yes, thanks for clarification. We made that fundamental mistake in misinterpreting.

Just posted @

If others, like PL Dr could make the mistake, well ...
