Neil Young announces Fireside Sessions live streaming series

Neil Young has announced plans to host a live streaming series entitled “Fireside Sessions” from isolation during the coronavirus pandemic.

"Because we are all at home and not many are venturing out, we will try to do a stream from my fireplace with my lovely wife filming," shared the rocker on his Neil Young Archives site. "It will be a down-home production, a few songs, a little time together ...

"We will soon be announcing the first one right here at NYA in the Times-Contrarian and on the Hearse Theater schedule, as well as social media except Facebook,"
he added. "As we have previously announced, we are dropping Facebook very, very soon, so if you rely on FB to contact us, prepare for a change."

Young’s wife, Daryl Hannah, wrote and directed the singer in her 2018 film, “Paradox”, with the rocker and Promise Of The Real appearing on the project’s accompanying soundtrack release; she also oversaw his December 2017 broadcast of “Somewhere In Canada”, a live event that saw him perform in his former Northern Ontario hometown of Omemee.

Young and Crazy Horse released their first album in seven years, “Colorado”, last October, and were planning to tour this spring before the global health crisis began; there’s no word, yet, on the status of the trek as no concert dates had been officially announced.

As part of an extensive series of 2020 archival album releases, Young will issue his shelved 1975 record, “Homegrown”, on April 18.

** UPDATED (03/20): Neil has streamed the debut edition of "Fireside Sessions" - get details here.
