These titles include: 21st Century Record Player, Earth Storage, Thanks for Listening, Ivanhoe, Storage Shed, and SQS (Studio Quality Sound), with its description reading as “Online and retail store services featuring music and artistic performances, high resolution music downloadable from the internet, high resolutions discs featuring music and video, and pre-recorded digital media featuring audio and video recordings for storage and playback.”
Unfortunately while Young might seem reluctant to talk about his upcoming project, details of it might have indadvertedly slipped. Dubbed “Pono”, Young’s upcoming project would be to create a new digital audio format that will provide the highest resolution possible, aiming to recreate the studio quality sound that both artists and producers heard during the course of recording. Will Young’s future audio format prevail in an industry with plenty of formats to choose from (i.e. MP3, FLAC, WAV, AAC, etc)? We guess we will have to wait and find out.
