Neil Young

Singer-songwriter/musician Neil Young has confirmed that not only will he be releasing a new album, A Letter From Home, but it will have an “old-school” lo-tech recording.  In fact, he told the press: “It’s one of the lowest-tech experiences I’ve ever had.”  Young was on his way to accepting the President’s Merit Award.  It was being given to him by the Recording Academy’s Producers & Engineers Wing for his numerous contributions to music.

Despite previous reports by other entertainment sources, this will not be the much anticipated cover album collaboration with The White Stripe’s Jack White.  A post on Young’s Facebook page states: “Neil Young and Jack White are not doing a record of duets as has been erroneously posted on various outlets.”  Sources at White’s label, Third Man Records, do indicate that White is still somehow involved with the lo-tech disc perhaps as producer.

Some speculate that Young’s new work was produced at White’s famous “Third Man Recording Booth” in Nashville.  This was where he laid down his recent adaptation of Scottish folk musician Bert Jansch’s “Needle of Death” as a special release for last year’s Record Store Day.

While Young was hesitant to share details, the label reports that A Letter From Home will be a previously “unheard collection of rediscovered songs from the past recorded on ancient electro-mechanical technology captures and unleashes the essence of something that could have been gone forever.”  Whether or not the new CD will be a part of Young’s upcoming PONO digital-music service remains to be seen.

Young hopes PONO will significantly raise the quality of the sound of digital media.  Young is planning to premiere both “the device and service” at the 2014 South by Southwest festival in March which he hopes will coincide with the release of the new album.
