Last week, the Black Keys released their seventh album, El Camino, to wide-spread acclaim and enthusiastic fan reception. I'm sure four car commercials were spawned based just on the first single, “Lonely Boy.” Invariably, the band is compared to that other bombastic two-piece who made rawk with blues infusions back in the 2000s. You know the one; they helped bring back rock and roll. That other one with a color in their name and only two people in the band.
As part of a new slew of releases from Jack White's Third Man Records, the former White Stripes frontman has teamed up with actor John C. Reilly -- his co-star from the movie Walk Hard -- for two new singles to be released on November 29.
First Jack White does the covering, and now he's the one being covered. Indie rock band Bright Eyes are now streaming their cover of the White Stripes' "We're Going to be Friends," which you can check out below.
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.
