Back in January we shared a report that Jack White would team with
Neil Young for a new album filled with covers. Today, more details have been revealed as Billboard reports that
White will appear on two tracks of Young's A Letter Home LP.
When can we expect the release of A Letter Home? "It's not ready for prime time
yet," Young tells Billboard about the cover-filled LP. "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."
Neil also told Billboard that he's working on original music as well, with no timeframe
given for its release. "I have new songs that I'm working on, and I haven't stopped doing
that," Young explained. "I do it when I feel like it and I'm collecting them. And
sometimes I play them live before they come out as a record, and because of the way
everything is people hear them before they come out, on the Internet. But I still feel
like I'm gonna make records of them."
