Neil Young Reveals Plans for Archives: Volume II
In a new interview with Rolling Stone, Neil Young reveals that he is indeed planning to release Archives: Volume II later this year. “It’ll be finished this summer. All of the music will be done. It goes just past [1979’s] Rust Never Sleeps. It’s full of albums that weren’t there before – stuff I did that I never put out.”
Volume One was released in June of 2009 and encompassed the years of 1963-1972. Included in the release was rare and unreleased music from those years.
Young also said he has plans to release five volumes, with the last covering the 2000s. “The rest will come out pretty quickly. While we’ve been working on Volume II, we’ve been working on the other Volumes.”
Recently, the guitarist spent time promoting his new release A Letter Home with Jack White. The two collaborated to cut a record on The Tonight Show using White’s 1940s telephone booth-turned-recording-studio.
