Neil Young to release 'low-tech' album 'A Letter Home' in March
Neil Young is set to release a new album entitled 'A Letter Home' in March.

Young said the album was "one of the lowest-tech experiences I've ever had" to Rolling Stone. Neil Young & Crazy Horse released two albums in 2012, 'Americana' and 'Psychedelic Pill'.

It was recently reported that Neil Young and Jack White had worked together on an album of covers. It is not yet known if this album is 'A Letter Home'. Journalist Michael Goldberg "confirmed" the story writing on his blog, saying that Young had recorded an album at Jack White's Third Man studios in Nashville. Young is pictured above at Third Man in the store's novelty vinyl recording booth, which can be used by members of the public.

According to Goldberg, Young and White made the "entire album together", with a prospective tracklist featuring Bob Dylan's 'Blowin' In The Wind', Tim Hardin's 'Reason To Believe', Gordon Lightfoot's 'Early Morning Rain' and Ivory Joe Hunter's 'Since I Met You Baby' as well as 'Needle Of Death', originally by the late Bert Jansch, a song which Young covered last year. The reports were later echoed on Neil Young fansite Thrasher's Wheat.

Both reports speculate that the album is a co-release by Young's label, Warner Bros, and White's Third Man Records. Earlier this month, Jack White said he was currently working on two different albums. "I'm producing two records this month, and finishing them," he wrote in an online chat. "One of them is mine."

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.
