Jack White and Neil Young Working on Covers Album
Jack White and Neil Young are reportedly cooking up the release of a covers album to pay tribute to some of the all-time singer/songwriter greats.

As Days of the Crazy Wild blog exclusively reports, the project is very much set in stone and will drop via Third Man Records in the near future.

According to the same source, Young's website posted these quotes to announce the effort last month: "It is an album of covers. In it, as anticipated, he pays tribute to other renowned singer-songwriters. There are 12 tracks on it. There are no Neil Young originals."

As "a source associated with the project" explained, the record will likely include the tunes Neil played at last year's Farm Aid concert, specifically Bert Jansch's "Needle of Death," Phil Ochs' "Changes," "Blowin' in the Wind" by Bob Dylan, Gordon Lightfoot's "Early Morning Rain," "Since I Met You Baby" by Ivory Joe Hunter and Tim Hardin's "Reason to Believe."

The report doesn't specify any details of White's involvement. Check out the clip below for Neil Young's "Blowin' in the Wind" performance.
