Jack White's Third Man Records has put the new Neil Young album up for
sale in vinyl format with little fanfare (and accompanying details) this afternoon.
Young recorded the album in a '40s recording booth at White's Third Man studios and A
Letter Home contains covers of songs from the likes of Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen
and Phil Ochs.
The ordering page includes images of the cover art and the back cover art,
which finally reveals the tracklisting for A Letter Home. One of the bigger
surprises is the inclusion of Bruce Springsteen's "My Hometown." Willie Nelson's "Crazy"
and "On The Road Again," Bob Dylan's "Girl From The North Country" and Phil Ochs's
"Changes" are among the other covers that made the cut. The back cover art lists Jack
White, who appears on the album, and Neil Young as "Reproducers."
Here's the look at the tracklist for A Letter Home:
