Neil Young has confirmed that Jack White will appear on his new album.

The album, titled 'A Letter Home', was recorded at White's Third Man studios in Nashville and will be released "very soon", most likely this Spring, Young told Billboard.

Young confirmed that he covers songs from his favourite writers on the album, and that White will feature on two of the tracks. "It's not ready for prime time yet," he said. "It's not really a release yet, but it's a very unique record. It's like a time capsule. It doesn't sound like anything you've heard that was made recently. And some great songs, some beautiful music."

He added: "They're songs that I love, songs that changed my life, songs that made it so that I understood what someone else was saying to me, songs by greater writers."

Young previously recorded a version of Bert Jansch's 'The Needle of Death' for Record Store Day 2013 in White's 1947 Voice-o-Graph booth.

Earlier this week, Neil Young gave a keynote speech at SXSW festival in Austin, Texas, during which he launched his high quality digital music service and portable music player Pono.

Neil Young and Crazy Horse will headline a huge outdoor show at London's Hyde Park on Saturday July 12. They'll be joined at Barclaycard British Summer Time by special guests The National, Tom Odell, Caitlin Rose, Phosphorescent and Flyte.
