Jack White's collaborator on 'Love Interruption' revealed as Ruby Amanfu
Nashville singer says she's 'lucky' to have hooked up with ex-White Stripes man
The former White Stripes man unveiled the track online yesterday (January 30) ahead of its release as a seven-inch single next Tuesday (February 7), with his debut solo album 'Blunderbuss' set to follow on April 23.
At first the identity of the female vocal that accompanies White on the record was unknown, but Amanfu has now taken to Twitter to inform fans that it belongs to her.
When asked to verify by a follower that it was her who had collaborated with White on the track, she replied:
Confirmed. I am the lucky one.
Amanfu, who also confirmed her involvement with White's new project on her official Facebook page, released her solo debut LP 'So Now The Whole World Knows' in 1998 and the follow-up, 'Smoke & Honey', in 2003.
In 2008, meanwhile, she teamed up with singer Sam Brooker to release their first self-titled EP under their Sam And Ruby moniker, and later went on to put out their debut full-length album 'The Here And The Now' the following year.
