Neil Young's back catalog of music is now available to stream again on services including Spotify and Apple Music.

The artist removed his music from all streaming services back in 2015, stating concerns over sound quality. But his full catalog of tunes has now returned, Musically reported.

"I don't need my music to be devalued by the worst quality in the history of broadcasting or any other form of distribution. I don't feel right allowing this to be sold to my fans. It's bad for my music," Young said in a Facebook post.

Young has yet to officially comment on his return to Spotify, so it remains to be seen whether the decision means he's now happy with the quality or it's simply a decision made on his behalf by managers.
