Neil Young has given completists and hardcore fans a gift this holiday season with the launch of a new subscription service and app for his vast, years-in-the-making Neil Young Archives (NYA). Created in partnership with Warner Bros. Records, the NYA website launched in beta a year ago and includes meticulously organized audio and visual content spanning Young's entire musical life.
The NYA subscription service will cost $1.99 per month or $19.99 for a full year and includes unlimited access to Young's always-growing ("This is a life’s work," he says. "It will never be finished") archives, including hi-resolution streams of all available recordings, plus a timeline filled materials related to his music, movies, videos, books, photographs, manuscripts and press notes.
The paid subscription, accessible via his website and an iOS app (Android soon), includes other perks like first dibs on concert tickets, livestreams of other live shows, early access to new and unreleased music, and full access to Young's personal news outlet, the NYA Times Contrarian.
