Entitled Storytone, Young’s latest album comes packaged with two versions. The first features a 92-piece orchestra and elaborate big band while the second is an acoustic version featuring Young recording solo.
Storytone has seen Young adopt a different creative approach, with the veteran musician “first recording the songs on his own in a solo-setting, then creating compelling versions of the songs in a new light with an orchestra and big band, resulting in a deeply-personal emotional listening experience throughout the new record.”
Storytone will be released on 4 November. The album will be available digitally as well as in a deluxe 180g double-LP package. The album will also be available via Young’s crowd-sourced music player Pono.
