La colección de siete pistas captura el "Episodio de Porch" de la serie Fireside Sessions de Young de julio. Esa actuación introdujo a los fans a la versión actualizada de "Lookin 'for a Leader 2020", que modifica la letra para apuntar específicamente a Trump y al clima político actual de Estados Unidos en 2020. El EP toma su nombre de otra pista destacada: una versión de Bob Dylan clásico "Los tiempos están cambiando". El Times se completa con cinco cortes de varias etapas en el catálogo de Young, todos los cuales son particularmente relevantes para la actualidad: "Ohio", "Alabama", "Southern Man", "Campaigner" y el corte de Homegrown "Little Wing".
El icónico compositor ofrece una selección de temas de todo su catálogo, interpretados en vivo en su casa y grabados con un iPad. Suena tan crudamente casero como cabría esperar.
Neil Percival Young OC OM (born November 12, 1945) is a Canadian-American singer-songwriter, musician, and activist. After embarking on a music career in the 1960s, he moved to Los Angeles, joining Buffalo Springfield with Stephen Stills, Richie Furay and others. Since his early solo albums and those with his backing band Crazy Horse, Young has been prolific, recording a steady stream of studio and live albums.
Young has received several Grammy and Juno Awards. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inducted him twice: in 1995 as a solo artist and in 1997 as a member of Buffalo Springfield. In 2000, Rolling Stone named Young the 34th greatest rock 'n roll artist. His guitar work, deeply personal lyrics and signature tenor singing voice define his long career. He also plays piano and harmonica on many albums, which frequently combine folk, rock, country and other musical styles. His often distorted electric guitar playing, especially with Crazy Horse, earned him the nickname "Godfather of Grunge" and led to his 1995 album Mirror Ball with Pearl Jam. More recently he has been backed by Promise of the Real. His 21 albums and singles have been certified Gold and Platinum in U.S by RIAA certification. Young directed (or co-directed) films using the pseudonym Bernard Shakey, including Journey Through the Past (1973), Rust Never Sleeps (1979), Human Highway (1982), Greendale (2003), and CSNY/Déjà Vu (2008). He also contributed to the soundtracks of the films Philadelphia (1993) and Dead Man (1995).
