Neil Young’s Low-Tech New Album ‘A Letter Home’ Due in March.
“It’s one of the lowest-tech experiences I’ve ever had,” he tells Rolling Stone.

Your next record’s coming out in March?
Yeah, it’s one of the lowest-tech experiences I’ve ever had.

How come?
You’ll hear it. It’s called A Letter Home.

Update (2):

It seems likely that Young recorded the album on a 1947 Voice-o-Graph machine located at Third Man’s Nashville headquarters.

“There’s something that happens with one mic,” Young said Tuesday night as he accepted the President’s Merit Award from the Producers & Engineers Wing. “When everyone sings into one mic, when everybody plays into the same mic: I’ve just never been able to do that, with some rare instances like when I record in a recording booth from a 1940s state fair. I got that sound by closing myself into a telephone booth. And I notice, it sounds just like an old record. And I like the sound of old records! I’ve always loved that.”

Originally made in 1947, the Voice-o-Graph is the only public vinyl record recording booth of its kind left in the world. After refurbishing it, Third Man opened the booth on Record Store Day 2013 and now anyone can come in and record up to two minutes of audio that’s cut onto a six-inch phonograph disc. Young stopped by Third Man last year where he recorded a cover of Bert Jansch’s “The Needle of Death” on the Voice-o-Graph last year for a special tribute to the acoustic guitar master.

More rumors, new Neil album of all covers?

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….

“It’s going to fuckin’ stun people.”

csny-306-1366054433-jpg_212240The above quote came from Graham Nash, and he’s talking about the  release of a live CSN&Y album from their 1974 reunion tour.

Tentative release date is Aug. 27.

Andy Greene from the Rolling Stone writes:

They have yet to settle on a title. “I want to call it What Could Possibly Go Wrong?” says Crosby. “I’m going to dig my heels and seriously fight for that. You can’t hear that without laughing your head off. It’s important to look at yourselves with a sense of humor in retrospect and realize what gigantic egos we had and what idiots we were. But I think it’s a great title. If I don’t get it, I’ll threaten to quit the band – at which point I’ll be reminded that there’s no band to quit!”

The 1974 tour wrapped at London’s Wembley Stadium on September 14th. They filmed that night and at least one other, but don’t expect to see any video footage in this package. “I don’t think Neil’s gonna go for that,” says Crosby. “He doesn’t like the way he looked. He doesn’t like his haircut on that tour.”

Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young haven’t toured in seven years. “What do we do after this live album comes out?” asks Nash. “Do we just let it lie there and fucking die, or do we do limited promotion? That’s not cowardly, but that’s not the way to do it. In my perfect world – and I’m only talking about what I would do – I would delay the release of this until the spring of 2014. I would ask David and Stephen and Neil to take three months off their busy lives and go out on tour to promote this record.”
