Neil Young Reveals Album Details
Last week we reported that Neil Young and Jack White had collaborated on a forthcoming album. While Young went on to deny that the album featured duets between the two performers, White has now confirmed that the new LP, titled A Letter Home, will be released via his own Third Man Records label. According to a post on Third Manâ€™s website, the new record will feature â€śan unheard collection of rediscovered songs from the past recorded on ancient electro-mechanical technology captures and unleashes the essence of something that could have been gone forever.â€ť
Earlier reports suggested that the release will likely include covers of Bert Janschâ€™s â€śNeedle of Death,â€ť Gordon Lightfootâ€™s â€śEarly Morning Rain,â€ť Tim Hardinâ€™s â€śReason to Believe,â€ť Bob Dylanâ€™s â€śBlowinâ€™ in the Wind,â€ť Phil Ochsâ€™ â€śChangesâ€ť and Ivory Joe Hunterâ€™s â€śSince I Met You Babyâ€ťâ€”all songs that Young covered at the 2013 Farm Aid concert.
Additionally, Young recently told Rolling Stone that recording the album was, â€śone of the lowest-tech experience Iâ€™ve ever had,â€ť leading the publication to speculate that the acclaimed singer-songwriter may have recorded the LP on the Voice-o-Graph at Third Manâ€™s Nashville headquarters. The machine, originally built in 1947, is the only public vinyl recording booth of its kind still in existence.
Young has confirmed that A Letter Home will be available in March, though no specific release date has been announced.
