The White Stripes team up with Beck

'Conquest' gets special B-sides

The White Stripes have teamed up with Beck for new material.

The old pals got together to work on B-sides for the Stripes‘ new single ’Conquest’.

Writing on their official site they said: “Jack and Meg recently recorded the new tracks with Beck, who co-produced all three tracks during a recording session in his living room and also contributed vocals and piano to ’It’s My Fault For Being Famous’ and slide guitar on ‘Honey, We Can’t Afford To Look This Cheap’.”

The band also wrote about the concept for the new video, saying: “The video follows an explosive – if unconventional – love story that pits man against bull in the ultimate conquest. To make his performance as authentic as possible, Jack White trained extensively with famed bullfighter Dennis Borba.”

‘Conquest’ will be released in three 7-inch formats – one black, one white and one red coloured.

Each single is set to “include a Mondo Toro trading card featuring the legendary, near-mythical matadors El Sloth, El Bianca Rosa and El Perdador. Despite being from early 1900’s Spain and Portugal, these bullfighters look strangely familiar. US copies of these singles will also include a different poster”.

The black vinyl will feature the track ’It’s My Fault For Being Famous’, the white will feature ’Honey, We Can’t Afford To Look This Cheap’ and the red with feature ’Cash Grab Complications On The Matter’.

All formats will be released on December 31.
