Jack White -- blues purist, garage rocker and noted Insane Clown Posse collaborator -- recently took part in the creation of an album called The Lost Notebooks of Hank Williams. As the name implies, the album features contemporary artists combing the lost notebooks of the late country legend and performing "cover" versions of never-before-heard songs.
Jack White and the Insane Clown Posse. They could release ten full-length albums together, tour relentlessly, start an annual music festival that bears both of their names and we probably still wouldn't get used to seeing those two names juxtaposed.
Thirteen contemporary artists, including Jack White and Bob Dylan, were tasked with taking unfinished lyrics and ideas written by the late Hank Williams and turning them into full-fledged songs. The collection, titled The Lost Notebooks of Hank Williams, will be released on October 3.
Two previously unreleased White Stripes cover songs are now streaming online. Both cover songs, Otis Redding's soul classic "I've Been Loving You Too Long" and Love's psychedelic garage nugget "Signed D.C.," can be streamed below.
It's splitsville for Guitarist Jack White and his wife, Karen Elson — but they'll have one final fling together as a married couple. They're throwing themselves a divorce party at 8 tonight in Nashville.
