Neil Young To Feel The Music Book

Neil Young‘s latest book To Feel The Music is due out September 9th via Benbella Books. Young co-wrote the tome with Phil Baker about his efforts to provide high-quality music to listeners.

To Feel The Music is Neil’s third book. The Rock & Roll Hall Of Famer wrote Waging Heavy Peace: A Hippie Dream in 2012 and Special Deluxe: A Memoir Of Life & Cars in 2014. Young posted a note about the forthcoming volume on his Neil Young Archives website:
My new book, To Feel The Music, co-written with Phil Baker, has been announced and is now available for pre-order on numerous book sites.

To Feel The Music is the story of my efforts to improve the quality of audio that you hear. It takes you through how the sound was and is compromised by the tech and record companies, and instead of improving over time like other technologies, it has become worse. Our book also tells the business and development story behind Pono, and then, when people wanted the convenience of streaming, how we developed Xstream high resolution streaming, the highest quality streaming in the world, as you hear it on NYA.

The issue of improving audio quality has been one of the most important things we’ve been doing for decacdes, and something I focus on every day. We spent a year writing this and I think you’ll find it interesting and informative.

The book will be released on September 9th
