Details of Jack White covers album revealed

A new compilation album paying tribute to the music of Jack White is to be released later this month.

Artists from the formative years of rock, rockabilly and punk such as Wanda Jackson and Gary U.S. Bonds have all contributed to Rockin’ Legends Pay Tribute to Jack White, released on November 18. Jackson, who has covered The White Stripes' "In The Cold, Cold Night" for the album, previously worked with White on her 2011 solo album, The Party Ain’t Over.

Speaking to Rolling Stone about the album, Jackson said: when I heard "Cold, Cold Night" for the first time I knew it was a song that I wanted to record some day. When the opportunity came around to pay tribute to Jack on this album I thought it was the perfect opportunity to lay it down in the studio. I’m very pleased with how it turned out, and I hope Jack approves of the job we did."

The 35th Uncut Playlist Of 2014


Weird serendipities aplenty this week: versions of "O, Death" on two albums I downloaded one after another, by Mike & Cara Gangloff and Bessie Jones; dovetailing into Sea Island overlap between Jones and Loscil. It makes for a nice blurring between time and genre with, say, the Gangloffs...
