Singer embraces hip-hop on new b-side
Jack White has tried his hand at numerous musical genres in the past and can now tick off hip-hop on his list with new song ‘Blues on Two Trees’ featuring the former White Stripes frontman rapping.
The track, which will be released as the B-side to new single ‘I’m Shakin’, starts off as a typically bluesy garage track White is famous for before the deadpan rhyming starts. “Three trees lying on the side of the road/ One tree barks, ‘Where the hell do we go?” White raps.

White has previously dabbled in hip-hop, having recorded tracks with both Insane Clown Posse and Black Milk. ‘Blues on Two Trees’ will be available in full from the Third Man Records store today (October 30). ‘I’m Shakin’ is the latest single to be taken from White’s critically acclaimed solo album ‘Blunderbuss’.

O2 Arena Dublin (October 31)
London Alexandra Palace (November 2, 3)
