Neil Young and Jack White to perform together on The Tonight Show tonight

Neil Young and Jack White will perform together on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon tonight.

The pair will chat to Fallon and perform a song from Young's new covers album A Letter Home on Monday (May 12). Jimmy Page and comedian Louis CK will also appear on the episode.

Earlier this year Young released A Letter Home on Jack White's Third Man Records. It features covers of tracks Willie Nelson, Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, The Everly Brothers and more. Young recorded the album in a refurbished 1947 Voice-o-Graph vinyl recording booth at the Third Man shop in Nashville, Tennessee.

A statement on Young's website describes the record as: "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".
