inger/songwriter Neil Young has revealed details of an upcoming live album which will provide an overview of the most important songs in his storied catalogue.

Revealed on the message boards for his kickstarter-funded, high quality streaming service Pono, the vocalist and multi-faceted musician has revealed that he’s in the midst of prepping EARTH,a new record that was put crafted over the course of his recent tour with new band Promise Of The Real.

In a move that’s sure to entice long-standing fans, Young has declared the 98 minute live album to be a career-spanning voyage through his life in music and will serve as ‘a collection of 13 songs from throughout my life, songs I have written about living here on our planet together.’

Continuing to preach the virtues of his brand new line of special Pono headphones, read Young’s full post below:

“I have been listening to my new album EARTH on Audeze earphones in PONO balanced mode. The sound is amazing and i feel the music the way I love to. It is just like being in the studio but no one can hear it but me as I sit in front of the fireplace. 98 uninterrupted minutes long, EARTH flows as a collection of 13 songs from throughout my life, songs i have written about living here on our planet together. Our animal kingdom is well represented in the audience as well and the animals, insects, birds and mammals actually take over the performances of the songs at times. My listening experience in balanced mode reveals the great depth of EARTH as it was performed live with Promise Of The Real. We are preparing to offer earphones and buds for listening to EARTH and your life long favorites in PONO balanced mode. These amazing products will be available in our Pono store, separately or in sets with our incredibly satisfying PonoPlayers soon. I hope you will enjoy them as much as I do. PONO is alive and well, growing at the pace it needs to grow to maintain the quality you deserve. England, you are next.

Thanks for listening!
