Jack White and Neil Young Worked on Music Together After All

Two collaboration tracks to be released on Young's upcoming album.

It turned out there was some truth in recently shot down rumors after all, as Neil Young has officially confirmed a studio collaboration with Jack White.

Titled "A Letter Home," Young's new covers album was recorded at White's Third Man studio in Nashville and will be available "very soon," most likely this spring.

Chatting with Billboard, Neil announced Jack's musical involvement on two tracks. "It's not ready for prime time yet," he added. "It's not really a release yet, but it's a very unique record. It's like a time capsule. It doesn't sound like anything you've heard that was made recently. And some great songs, some beautiful music."

As far as a new studio record with original music is considered, the musician confirmed having fresh material, but no specific release plans as of yet. "I have new songs that I'm working on, and I haven't stopped doing that," he said.

"I do it when I feel like it and I'm collecting them. And sometimes I play them live before they come out as a record, and because of the way everything is people hear them before they come out, on the Internet. But I still feel like I'm gonna make records of them."

Young is also working on his second book, "Special Deluxe," turning 2014 into quite a busy year for the rock icon. As reported, Neil had recently unveiled his new Pono music player. More details here.

    Neil Young is just a monster. If there's anyone you should look up to in rock n roll it's this guy. He's done it his way throughout his career.
    Neil Young, you crazy old nigger :')
    Have you heard Southern Man or Alabama
    Fuck you fagz and your lack of knowing when to take a joke, I have allot respect for neil and his contribution to folk music, I wouldn't have picked up a guitar if it wasn't for him so take out the busted broomstick out of your ass's, wrap barbed wire laced with coke and reinsert it back in while you plummet off the grand canyon singing out the story of johnny rotten
    Everybody on Ultimate-Guitar that can't take a joke or understand sarcasm always comes together to bully people, despite the fact that some unfunny guy who doesn't know when a running joke should stop continues to go around calling people bellends.
    I'm the very definition of a bellend and others can take that fact to their graves if they like, and you've only let this flame war continue with your logical sense of whats right and wrong, does no one see the irony of the joke of neil young not being a nigger to begin with? honestly you guys make chimps sitting on porches seem like such a bad thing
    Sleeping in
    You haven't listened to any of Neil Young's music if you think that comment is appropriate or appreciated.
