The White Stripes Go Spanish

From the official White Stripes newsletter:

The White Stripes are pleased to announce the release of “Conquista”, a Spanish language version of their current hit “Conquest”. The single will be released on CD and 7″ vinyl in the U.S on February 19th and in the U.K shortly after.

The release will appear credited to Las Rayas Blancas and comes with the following track listing:

1 or A. Conquista
2 or B. Conquest (Versión Acústica De Mariachi)

“Conquista” comes replete with its own Spanish language version of the Diane Martel video. The “Conquista” video will premiere on Mun2s The Shuffle on Thursday Feb 7th, along with an exclusive interview with Jack White. It will be aired again on Pepsi Música on Mun2 on Friday February 8th.

This sounds pretty awesome. Who wouldn’t want to hear Jack singing en espanol? Could the White Stripes do a reverse Shakira?
