Report: Neil Young & Jack White Prep Covers Album

By Tom Breihan / January 16, 2014 - 4:06 pm

During a recent Reddit AMA, Jack White said that he’s “producing two albums this month, and finishing them,” also saying that “one of them is mine.” And now, as Consequence Of Sound points out, the music journalist Michael Goldberg claims that the other album is a full-on collaborative covers album from White and Neil Young. Young has visited White’s Third Man compound in Nashville at least a few times lately, to take part in Willie Nelson’s CMT Crossroads special and to record a cover of a Bert Jansch song in Third Man’s Recording Booth during last year’s Record Store Day. And now Goldberg speculates that this covers album could include versions of folk songs by Bob Dylan, Phil Ochs, Gordon Lightfoot, Ivory Joe Hunter, Tim Hardin, and others. If this is true, it could certainly be badass.
