Jack White has covered Modern Lovers’ track ‘Pablo Picasso’ – check it out below.
In promotion of the album, White has recorded a special live session for the ‘Spotify Singles’ series. As well a live version of the album track ‘Over and Over and Over’, the rocker tracked a rendition of Modern Lovers’ 1976 track.
White’s interpretation of ‘Pablo Picasso’ is infused with distorted organ and bluesy guitar licks.
The song originally featured on the US band’s self-titled debut and was produced by Velvet Underground’s John Cale. It’s also been covered by David Bowie – appearing on his 2003 album ‘Reality’.
In other news, White brought his mum on stage during a homecoming show in Detroit last week.
Meanwhile, the ‘Seven Nation Army’ star has discussed how he’s unable to listen to any music other than his own when he’s recording a new album. He said that he’d “start thinking about it or emulating it”.
“I don’t want to think about that world so I only listen to songs I’m working on when I work on a record. So now this [album] is out I can’t listen to it anymore, because I’ve just been listening to it for a year straight.”
Jack White also appeared on Saturday Night Live earlier this month. He performed and appeared as a wedding guitarist in an unaired sketch.
