Watch For A Letter Home From Neil Young
Neil Young's new album A Letter Home, which he recently described as "one one of the lowest-tech experiences I've ever had," will see release via Jack White's Third Man Records. While Young said that the record would be out in March, no official release date has been given yet.
Other details regarding A Letter Home are slim, including the extent to which White was involved (a note on Young's Facebook page did debunk rumors that the album was a collection of duets between the two musicians). It seems likely that Young recorded the album on a 1947 Voice-o-Graph machine located at Third Man's Nashville headquarters. MORE HERE
Young will also launch his new music player PONO at the SXSW music conference in Austin, Texas in March (2014).
Young was awarded the President's Merit Award from the Producers and Engineers arm of the Recording Academy and said his PONO player would be launched at SXSW.
PONO is a high quality digital music player that will play the sound to the listener as it was recorded in the studio. It will become the hi-tech alternative to the low quality MP3 players such as the iPod. source
