Neil Young and Jack White to Record and Press Vinyl Live on 'Tonight Show'
White and Young will be performing on this evening's (May 12) episode of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, and the show's host announced on Twitter, "Making history tonight — Neil Young is going to perform and press a vinyl with the help of Jack White live on the show. One take. Fun."
It's possible that White will be using his direct-to-acetate recording method. Then again, maybe he's bringing his vintage recording booth to The Tonight Show, since that would explain why Third Man recently announced that the booth is currently not in its usual home in the label's shop. This is the same booth in which Young recorded his new covers album A Letter Home.
It remains to be seen whether this vinyl recording is just for fun, or if it will be made available commercially through Third Man.
