Neil Young's new album A Letter Home to be released on Jack White's Third Man Records

It has been confirmed that Neil Young's forthcoming album A Letter Home will be released on the Third Man Records label owned by Jack White.

A message posted on the Third Man and Neil Young websites confirmed the news.

Credited to 'Homer Grosvenor', the message reads: "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…"

While further details on the album are in short supply, Young has said that the record will be released in March. He was recently pictured with the 1947 Voice-o-Graph machine located at Third Man's Nashville headquarters, which could be the ancient electro mechanical technology referred to in the message. The machine allows users to make a vinyl recording of their own voice in real time.

Young has said that recording the album was "one of the lowest-tech experiences I've ever had".
