Neil Young is about to go out of the black and into the Blu.
The musician just announced that he will release his entire music catalog on Blu-ray. According to Electronista, the extra disc space will allow for a boost in sound quality—as well as a few tidbits, such as music videos, unreleased songs, and other extras.
To date, movies have only been released on Blu-ray, with the exception of concert videos. Young’s archive will be the first to allow users to download content from the web, via BD-Live.
Neil Young’s first installment will be a 10-disc set covering his work from 1963 to 1972. Expect the box to hit this fall on Reprise/Warner Bros. Records.
