Neil Young’s new album announced on blu-ray audio

Atmos Mix, hi-res stereo & more

The recently announced Neil Young album, Before & After, is being made available on the blu-ray audio format.

With this album, Young chooses favourites from his playbook like a trip into his music history and performs them mostly alone on a solo acoustic journey. Apparently, each of the songs blend into each other and “morph with mesmerising clarity into a continuous flow of music creating a 48-minute pure and intimate listening experience”.

The 13-track record spans Neil’s career, from his early Buffalo Springfield contribution, ‘Burned’ (1966) to the recent ‘Don’t Forget Love’ (2021) and includes the previously unreleased song ‘If You Got Love’.

The blu-ray comes with a poster lyric sheet

Neil is well known for his interest in high quality audio but it has been over a decade since he has issued a new album on blu-ray as a standalone format (he did it twice in 2012 with Americana and Psychedelic Pill) so this is certainly welcome.

This special blu-ray audio edition offers a Dolby Atmos Mix, a hi-res 96-24 stereo mix and interestingly a ‘binaural’ mix which offers a spatial audio mix via headphones.

Before and After is released on 8 December 2023 via Warner Records. You can order your copy of the blu-ray audio from the SDE shop using this link or via the button below. Given how expensive the CD is, this makes the investment in the blu-ray more attractive!
