NEW YORK, May 19 (UPI) -- Neil Young "made history" on Monday May 12, as he performed and pressed a vinyl during an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.

Young and Jack White attended Monday's show to promote the singer's upcoming LP, A Letter Home, which was released on White's label Third Man Records.

After their interview with Fallon, Young stepped into a refurbished 1947 vinyl recording booth -- where he recorded A Letter Home -- to perform Willy Nelson's 1961 hit "Crazy." At the same time, White pressed the song onto vinyl live before the studio audience.

Fallon later shared the experience with his 12.7 million Twitter followers writing: "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."

Young's newest record hits stand on May 27.
