The Valentine's Day single release is part of Third Man Records' Blue Series
The single features new songs ‘You Don’t Have To Be Smart’ and ‘Horse Named George’, as well as a cover of hardcore band Adrenalin OD’s ‘Paul’s Not Home’. Scroll down to listen to an excerpt from the track.
Haynes sings on all three songs whilst White plays guitar. The former frontman of The White Stripes also provides backing vocals on ‘Paul’s Not Home’. The song originally appeared on 1982’s ‘New York Thrash’ compilation alongside the first ever recorded Beastie Boys tracks, ‘Riot Fight’ and ‘Beastie’.
The single is released on February 14, but a number of limited edition versions of the 7″ will be pressed onto old medical x-rays, in what White is dubbing a ‘flex-ray disc’. These will be sold exclusively from Third Man’s Rolling Record Store van at South By Southwest next month in Austin, Texas.
Jack White will be performing as part of the Grammy Awards ceremony in Los Angeles this Sunday (February 10). His debut solo album, ‘Blunderbuss’, has been nominated for Album of the Year and Best Rock Album.
