Neil Young has confirmed he's most definitely married to Daryl Hannah.

The Toronto-born musician addressed the rumours Wednesday in a message on his website, the Neil Young Archives.

Young refers to Hannah as "my wife Daryl" in an introduction to a new video the two put together for his 1970 song Ohio.

In his message, he calls for changes to American gun laws and encourages people to get out and vote.  

"Give us common sense gun laws that protect our people, in schools, in places of worship, in the workplace and on the streets. Vote," Young wrote.

It's the first time Young has addressed months of speculation that he and Hannah tied the knot over the summer.

Rumours began circulating in August when Hannah's Instagram page filled with comments congratulating her on the ceremony.

Young's post also reflected on how Ohio, which he wrote as part of Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, was inspired by the Kent State shootings in which Ohio National Guardsmen shot and killed four students in 1970.
