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.
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.
