This past summer, rumours made the rounds that Neil Young and actress Daryl Hannah in a private California ceremony. Young and Hannah have collaborated on some projects in the past.
Today, Young released a live performance video for his iconic Crosby, Stills, Nash, & Young song “Ohio,” as part of an initiative to push fans to vote in the upcoming U.S. midterm election. Young included a message to go with the video release on his Neil Young Archives page, where he refers to “My wife Daryl.”
So there you have it, the 72-year-old singer-songwriter and 57-year-old Hannah are officially married. Check out the new “Ohio” video below.
“Ohio,” which was originally released in 1970, is a protest song inspired by the Kent State University shootings of May 4, 1970. The song also appears on Young’s Live at Massey Hall record, which was recorded in 1971 but not released until 2007.
“It was a pivotal moment for me,” Young wrote about the Kent State shootings in today’s statement. “Today we see what we have become. With no real laws protecting us from guns, and with politicians supporting the NRA because the NRA supports them, we are not well represented. Today’s students are brave, demanding change in violent times.”
“My wife Daryl and I put this video together for you to reflect on.”
