Neil Young announces three new archival releases

Neil Young has once again been dipping into his extensive back catalogue and will release three new archival projects.

Finally, Young has confirmed that the long-awaited release of ‘Neil Young Archives Volume 2’ will be shared later this year. As fans of the musician know all too well, Young initially promised to release the project after the first volume arrived back in 2009.

The work, which Young previously said would be “full of albums that weren’t there before — stuff I did that I never put out”, will officially be released on November 6th. To coincide with that news, Young has also confirmed plans to release Return to Greendale, a live set from his tour with Crazy Horse to support 2003 effort Greendale on the same day.

Completing the three big releases, Young also confirmed that in December he will share Way Down in the Rust Bucket, a Crazy Horse concert which was first recorded at Santa Cruz’s Catalyst Club in November 1990.

“In these days, like you, I have been staying at home as much as I can, and that’s a lot,” Young said in the post on his official website. “I have been working, staying busy with projects that have come into being because of the crisis we are sharing.”
