Neil Young releases “A Letter Home”

neil-young-a-letter-homeSurprise is right!

Neil Young just pulled a Beyoncé, writes COS (Consequence of Sound).

The legendary singer-songwriter has released his new covers album, A Letter Home. The vinyl record, spanning 10 tracks, is now available for purchase through Third Man Records.

 

The album was recorded at Jack White’s Third Man Records HQ in Nashville, inside a 1940s-era Voice-o-Graph recording booth. White himself is featured on two tracks.

The album includes covers of songs by equally illustrious singer-songwriters, including Bruce Springsteen (“My Hometown”), Bob Dylan (“Girl From The North Country”), and Willie Nelson (“On The Road Again”), among others.

The ordering page includes images of the cover art and the back cover art, which lists Jack White, who appears on the album, and Neil Young as “Reproducers.”

Young described the Voice-O-Graph as “A phone booth. It’s all acoustic with a harmonica inside a closed space, with one mic to vinyl.” It results in a “lo-fi analog record”, which Young described as “retro-tech.” However, in keeping with the spirit of his new music service Pono, it’ll feature a high-resolution sound. As he explained, “You can make a lo-fi, analog record, direct to vinyl, transfer it to 192, and you have a high res copy of a lo-fi vinyl record.”

A Letter Home Tracklist: 01. “Changes” (Phil Ochs) 02. “Girl From The North Country” (Bob Dylan) 03. “Needle of Death” (Bert Jansch) 04. “Early Morning Rain” (Gordon Lightfoot) 05. “Reason To Believe” (Tim Hardin) 06. “On The Road Again” (Willie Nelson) 07. “If You Could Only Read My Mind” (Gordon Lightfoot) 08. “Since I Met You Baby” (Ivory Joe Hunter) 09. “My Hometown” (Bruce Springsteen) 10. “I Wonder If I Care As Much” (Everly Brothers)

More rumors, new Neil album of all covers?

Third Man Records phone booth

Scott Sandie from the Neil Young Appreciation Society is reporting that Neil Young’s next album was recorded in Jack White’s record booth.

According to Scott:

“It should be out sometime in the new year.  I don’t know its release details but would be surprised if it’s only available via Third Man.  But this is Neil, so who knows. I anticipate this will be a very big seller.  It is an album of covers.  In it, as anticipated,  he pays tribute to other renowned singer-songwriters.  There are 12 tracks on it. There are no Neil Young originals, but…each side starts with an introduction (part 1, part 2) of the same title.  That could be a Neil Young original although I have another theory on what these might be…  A couple of the songs chosen will astonish you.  Sorry for the secrecy but more on this might leak soon…”

Thanks BH & Scott….

So I spoke to my old friend Bruce and told him I was feeling it, his loss of Clarence. We talked for quite a while, and there is no need to go into what two old friends had to say to each other at this point, except to say that two old friends spoke to each other about their music, their muses, their partners in crime, their proof, their friendship, their souls and their lives. Ben Keith was my Clarence Clemons. Clarence Clemons was Bruce\'s Ben Keith. When he died last year it touched me to the core. I don\'t want to ever think of any one else playing his parts or occupying his space. No one could. I can\'t do those songs again unless it\'s solo. So I told Bruce, \"Waylon once looked at me and said, \'There\'s very few of us left.\'\" He liked that. I told him when he looked to his right I would be there. That\'s enough. I\'m not talking about that anymore.
