yep...Neil Young releases his new album in a couple of weeks time....im not expecting much though!
its a covers set called "a letter home", it was recorded in a booth in Jack white's Nashville studio.
as it was recorded in a booth im assuming it will be an acoustic affair with just Neil,guitar and possibly harmonica.
it will be his tenth release since 2005, and that doesnt include his autobiography,his electric/bio fuel car development or his 'pono' sound system...
so Uncle Neil has been a very busy boy,shame he thinks more about quantity than quality these days, but i'll get the album anyway!

Third Man Records unearths Neil Young's A Letter Home. ''An 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...'' - Homer Grosvenor Last July (2013), Neil Young traveled to Nashville, Tenn to record an album of covers at Jack White's Third Man Records on a refurbished 1947 Voice-o-Graph vinyl recording booth.. ''Neil Young just stopped by. He was driving his electric car, the LincVolt, he was driving around town and filming stuff, and he stopped by, checked it out, and me and him were talking about it. We had a curtain set up on the other side,'' said White. ''And some kid came into the recording booth and recorded a Neil Young song and when he opened the door, Neil Young just peaked his head out.'' ''It was a pretty beautiful moment. And I think that a few months later he called me and said, 'Hey man I want to come and record in that booth. Hey, maybe I'll do my whole next record there.' I'm like, 'I'm not going to stop you. Where do you want me to pick you up?''' 180-gram single LP old-style, tip-on sleeves
