Featuring songs handpicked from across his extraordinary career, Before and After finds Neil Young more or less alone with his guitar, throwing down 48 minutes worth of his personal favourites. According to Young, the album is designed to be listened to in one sitting, almost like a concert, with song choices ranging from early Buffalo Springfield (Burned) to a cut from 2021's Barn, and a very special unreleased song called If You Got Love.

On his new album, Before And After, Young has approached a totally eclectic collection of mostly obscure songs like a painter with a new palette.
Picking from a vast array of his originals, Young chooses favorites from his playbook like a trip into his music history and performs them mostly alone, taking a solo acoustic journey to a new place. Each of the songs blend and create one continuous flow, clocking in at a 48-minute pure and intimate listening experience. Produced by Lou Adler and Neil Young and mixed by Young and Niko Bolas, aka The Volume Dealers, this is unlike any other album he has released to date.
Young describes Before And After succinctly: “The feeling is captured, not in pieces, but as a whole piece — designed to be listened to that way. This music presentation defies shuffling, digital organization, separation. Only for listening. That says it all”.
New versions of the songs themselves seamlessly move and morph with mesmerizing clarity, beginning with his earliest Buffalo Springfield appearance, Burned, to the recent Don't Forget Love (from 2021’s BARN) and including the previously unreleased song If You Got Love.
