Jack White Is Featured on Neil Young’s New Covers Album

Earlier this year, we reported that Neil Young and Jack White would be releasing an album of covers together. It was later revealed that Young would be putting out a cover-filled LP titled A Letter Home, but the singer-songwriter claimed that White was not involved and that the “rumors have no basis in truth.”

Now, it appears as though there was, in fact, some truth to the rumors. Young has told Billboard that White is featured on the new record, which was recorded at the musicians’ Third Man Records Studios. There is currently no word on whether or not White produced the release, but it looks like he will be appear on two tracks.

In related news, White and a number of other superstar musicians have endorsed Young’s new PONO music service. The system was unvelied earlier this week at SXSW, and Young’s Kickstarter campaign has already raised over $2 million in two days (he had hoped to raise $800,000 in 35 days).

If you are a multimillionaire musician why the fuck do you have to do a kickstarter campaign for what ever fucking reason! That takes a lot of nerve!! Couldn’t you just it do ityourself and then write it off as a business expense or somethin. If you believe in something don’t have a bunch of other people invest in your “great idea” ! What a fuckn joke!
