The rock legend told his Neil Young Archives subscribers in a private Zoom session on Wednesday that he plans to feature songs such as "Prime of Life" from Sleeps With Angels, the Trans outtake "If You Got Love," and "Song X" from his 1995 Pearl Jam collaboration Mirror Ball.

"I don't want to come back and do the same songs again," Young said, per Rolling Stone. "I’ll feel like I was on some sort of carnival ride. I’d rather be doing these other songs I haven't done. I won't have to compare how I’m doing ‘Heart of Gold’ to [how it was played in] 1970, 1980, 1990, 2000, 2010, 2020."

Young will still play some more familiar material but said he was inspired to go heavy on ones "that apply to my life right now and apply to everyone's lives in this era that we’re in. Some of them were written 10, 20, 30, 40 years ago, but never really played live."

The artist took three-plus years off the road before and during the COVID-19 pandemic, a streak broken in February when he appeared unannounced at a forest preservation really in British Columbia. Since then, he joined longtime bandmate Stephen Stills at the latter's annual autism benefit in Los Angeles in April and also dropped by Willie Nelson's 90th birthday bash at the Hollywood Bowl.
