A Letter Home is the thirty-fourth studio album by Canadian singer-songwriter Neil Young, released in April 2014 via Third Man Records.

Released on Record Store Day, the entire album consists of covers of classic songs by artists Bruce Springsteen, Bob Dylan, Willie Nelson, Gordon Lightfoot and others.

It was recorded in a refurbished 1947 Voice-o-Graph vinyl recording booth at Jack White's Third Man Records recording studio in Nashville, Tennessee.  On Young's website the album is described as "an unheard collection of rediscovered songs from the past recorded on ancient electro-mechanical technology captures and unleashes the essence of something that could have been gone forever."

The album contains a single take of each song as analogue recordings touched by deliberate imperfections and 1930s style crackle and static. Bizarre, given that Young seemed to be devoting the greater portion of his energy to developing the digital Pono player. We can only assume Young seems to enjoy undermining his own projects. Not only this, but whilst Psychedelic Pill seemed to have revived his sense of focus and purpose with Crazy Horse, Young continues to surprise with an even more stubborn and peculiar record than Americana or Greendale.

For those seeking an experimental album with a recording process only a year younger than the artist, A Letter Home fits the bill.

Check out tracks from the album.  Changes, My Home Town and On The Road Again.

This LP record is on 180 gram heavyweight vinyl with a printed inner sleeve and was pressed in the US.
