We’re less than a week into the new year and Jack White has already dropped a few surprises on our plate. The Third Man Records team, aka the A-Team of Rock (as I like to call them), just sent us the most exciting email of the day (sorry, Mom). Jack White’s next round of releases include 7” vinyl/digital singles from Wanda “Queen of Rockabilly” Jackson, with whom White’s also working on a full-length album, and The Black Belles, a mysterious all-female rock group shown in the photo above.
Jackson’s Jack White-produced 7” will hold a cover of Amy Winehouse’s “You Know I’m No Good” on one side and a version of “Shakin’ All Over,” by 1960s British rock band Johnny and the Pirates, on the flip side. The Black Belles, however, are releasing their first two original songs, “What Can I Do” and “Lies.” Both singles are set for an iTunes and physical release on January 26.
Not a bad little early ‘10 surprise, no? Oh, they’re not done yet: the Dead Weather’s recording sessions last month must’ve gone fairly well, as the first studio takes of two new songs, “No Horse (Take One)” and “Jawbreaker (Take One),” which are being prepped for the follow-up to their debut, Horehound, are coming out as an exclusive 7” to members of their subscription service, The Vault.
