Get ready for a retro Americana throwdown of epic proportions if early reports of a collaboration between Jack White and Neil Young to record an album of cover songs are to be believed.
According to veteran music writer Michael Goldberg (via his blog Days of the Crazy-Wild), the dynamic duo of White and Young laid down versions of Bob Dylan's "Blowin' in the Wind," Phil Ochs' "Changes" and Gordon Lightfoot's "Early Morning Rain" among others for the covers album his sources say is destined for White's Third Man Records label, with a possible release on Warner Bros. as well.
The blog also references Neil Young fan site Thrasher's Wheat, alleging the covers collaboration back in December of last year and adding that Third Man would release the album in a special vinyl format.
