Neil Young says his music is too good for streaming services

Neil Young's been touting the merits of high-resolution audio for some time now, and he's had enough of streaming services' quality. The singer is pulling his music from those subscription-based libraries, a move fellow artist Prince made just days ago (Prince's tunes are still available on Tidal, of course). "I don't feel right allowing this to be sold to my fans," Young said. If you really need your fix of "My My, Hey Hey," he'd probably suggest you try Pono. He may rethink the decision when and if sound quality improves, but for now, he'd rather his music not be compromised by "the worst quality in the history of broadcasting or any other form of distribution." I wonder what his thoughts are on Tidal's lossless tier.
