The White Stripes star sheds light on Hank Williams project
Jack White has spoken about his work on a project organised by Bob Dylan.
White, who has now recorded his version of the Williams lyrics ‘You Know That I Know’ in Nashville, explained: “[Bob] came upon, somehow, 20-25 unfinished songs by Hank Williams, just the lyrics, no music, and he started to ask people if they would finish these songs.
“He did one, asked Willie Nelson to do one, asked me to do one, and I think Lucinda Williams and Alan Jackson are on it too. I think it might come out this year. It’s a cool record.”
He said: “There’s some other stuff I have coming out, but I can’t tell you about it all just yet. You’ll have to be patient!”
