The singer-songwriter, who launched his own Pono digital music player earlier this month, recently called the vinyl revival “nothing but a fashion statement”.
“A lot of people that buy vinyl today don’t realise that they’re listening to CD masters on vinyl and that’s because the record companies have figured out that people want vinyl,” Young said in an interview with Californian radio show Frame. “And they’re only making CD masters in digital, so all the new products that come out on vinyl are actually CDs on vinyl, which is really nothing but a fashion statement.”
Young’s interview was to promote Pono, which offers high-quality audio and is capable of storing up to 2,000 high resolution songs. “I’m saying that it’s a high-resolution digital player,” Young said. “It doesn’t create an analog sound; it creates the best digital sound. It’s capable of creating the best sounds that people can create in the digital realm in the recording studios.”
Neil Young released two studio albums in 2014. His 34th album, ‘A Letter Home’, was released in March on Jack White’s Third Man Records label, while a follow-up, titled ‘Storytone’, followed in November of the same year.
