Neil Young releases new album A Letter Home on Record Store Day

Neil Young has released his long-awaited new album A Letter Home on Record Store Day [April 19, 2014].

The album, which was produced by Jack White is available now from Third Man records and select record shops.

A Letter Home was recorded at White's Third Man studios and consists entirely of cover versions.

The idea for the album appears to have been hatched after Young recorded a version of Bert Jansch's "Needle Of Death" for Record Store Day 2013 in White's 1947 Voice-o-Graph booth at the Third Man store in Nashville.

The tracklisting for A Letter Home is:
A Letter Home Intro

Reason To Believe (Tim Hardin)
