Jack White Teams Up with Alison Mosshart

Some people obsessively like to paint, others like to create a plethora of websites, Jack White likes to create musical supergroups. Mr. White’s record label, Third Man Records, has revealed its latest band- The Dead Weather, which is fronted by The Kill’s Alison Mosshart, and includes The Raconteurs‘ Jack Lawrence on bass, Dean Fertita from Queens Of The Stone Age on guitar and Jack White on drums and vocals.

The group recently christened the opening of the new Third Man Records in downtown Nashville by performing songs from their upcoming album, Horehound, to a crowd of 150 people.

Weren’t lucky enough to be one of those folks in the crowd? The album, which is scheduled to be released in June, features the song “Hang You From The Heavens,” which can currently be downloaded off of iTunes.

  1. “…sounding a lot like a stripped-down version of the White Stripes.” -LA Times.

    no. they do not sound like the white stripes. but jack white is quite the wonderful musician.

  2. i saw the raconteurs in atl at the tabernacle and alison sang on steady. she drove me crazy. i was so happy when the song was over and she exited the stage. i can’t believe he started a band with her. what is going on with jack? where is the new white stripes record???

  3. Jack is the man, everything he does is great. I would very surprised to see a new White Stripes album. Jack has matured beyond that level of simplicity. There’s more going on in his head than the White Stripes can offer.

  4. Maybe it’s too soon to judge, but like the Raconteurs, this band seems a little cheesy. I’ll always love Jack, but I find myself unable to let go of the things that made me love him to begin with. This makes it hard to embrace these other projects. I say this all the time…the medicine I feel Jack needs most can only be administered by Greg Cartwright. Bless the heart of Little Jack for being everywhere.

  5. I nearly wet my pants while reading this. My four favourite bands in one? My prayers have been answered.
