High-res music streaming platform Qobuz is reporting a surge of new users, following the Neil Young vs Joe Rogan Spotify fracas. With 70 million tracks, Qobuz claims to be the biggest catalogue of Hi-Res music in the world, with all music available in lossless CD-quality or Hi-Res 24-bit quality.

Widely available across a variety of platforms, the service also offers a download store, where recordings can be obtained in CD or Hi-Res quality.

“Sometimes you see things and you wonder what caused it. This was, ‘Thanks, Neil.’” Dan Mackta, Managing Director of Qobuz USA, said. “It’s been a great opportunity for people to discover our service, even though it’s probably not going to be on the front page headlines much longer.”

Along with the majority of Neil Young (and other artists’) discography available in hi-res, Qobuz has other musician fans: The Flaming Lips’ Wayne Coyne was recently appointed as an ambassador for Qobuz. “Qobuz reminds me of listening to my favourite college radio DJs in the early 80’s, who really knew their music and cared about turning us on to it,” he said.

Qobuz prices start at £10.83/month, with subscription packages available in Solo, Duo, and Family plans.
