Neil Young is married to Daryl Hannah, confirms the singer in a video. The two have been together since 2014.
It was a new video of the song Ohio, in which he calls on Americans to vote.
In the video, the 72-year-old singer tells us that he wrote the song in 1970 after seeing photographs of a student who had been shot by the National Guard during protests against the Vietnam War. “That was a crucial moment in our history, and this is another crucial moment”, says Young, who is also Canadian.
In his message the musician makes a case for stricter weapons legislation and praises students who demonstrate for better living conditions. “We stand behind them, we are them, my wife Daryl and I have put together this video to think about it.”
Young and 57-year-old Hannah came together after the musician was separated from his wife Pegi after 36 years. At the end of August there were rumors that the two had stepped into the marriage boat.
One day after the supposed ceremony, Hannah placed a photo of an owl with a cryptic message on Instagram. “Someone watches over us, love and nothing but love,” she wrote.
