Neil Young has revealed plans to release a new album – A Letter Home – in March.

Neil Young’s new album A Letter Home, which he recently described to Rolling Stone Magazine as “one of the lowest-tech experiences I’ve ever had”.  The new album will see a release via Jack White’s Third Man Records, whose website describes the LP as “an unheard collection of rediscovered songs from the past recorded on ancient electro-mechanical technology,” which “captures and unleashes the essence of something that could have been gone forever.”  This message, credited to “Homer Grosvenor”, was posted on both Young and Third Man’s websites recently announcing the album.

Other details regarding A Letter Home are slim, including the extent to which White was involved – it appears that it won’t be a collection of duets, but who knows?  Rolling Stone Magazine suggest that: “it seems likely that Young recorded the album on a 1947 Voice-o-Graph machine located at Third Man’s Nashville headquarters”.

Whatever Neil is going to do, I suspect that he will doing all in his power not to repeat himself, something that he has eschewed throughout his glorious career.
