An album of covers recorded at Third Man Record's restored 1947 recording booth, Nashville

180-gram vinyl LP, recorded with Jack White

From Neil Young and Third Man Records comes the vinyl album A Letter Home, a collection of covers recorded with Jack White at White's Third Man Records in Nashville. The musicians recorded in White's refurbished 1947 Voice-O-Graph recording booth, to 1-track mono, giving the album an inherent warm, primitive feel of a vintage Folkways recording.

Young describes the album as "an unheard collection of rediscovered songs from the past recorded on ancient electro-mechanical technology that captures and unleashes the essence of something that could have been gone forever."

Young chose songs that have personal meaning for him, such as British folk artist Bert Jansch's "Needle of Death" (which inspired Young to write 1972's "Needle and the Damage Done"), Bob Dylan's "Girl from the North Country," Willie Nelson's "Crazy," Don Everly's "Wonder If I Care as Much," Bruce Springsteen's "My Home Town," and many others. The album begins with Neil recording a spoken letter to his late mother, informing her of his personal and present state of affairs, which sets the tone and atmosphere for the duration of the album.
