u2 covers Check Out: Jack White covers U2's "Love is Blindness"

On October 31st, U2‘s highly acclaimed 1991 LP, Achtung Baby, will be reissued. To celebrate, Q Magazine has put together one hell of a tribute album, featuring everyone from Depeche Mode to Patti Smith to Jack White offering covers off the album. Today, White’s inclusion of “Love Is Blindness” debuted on BBC Radio 2, and true to the man’s style, it’s layered in Delta blues bliss, leaving little evidence of everyone’s favorite Irish arena rockers. Give it a spin below (via Interference).

And for context’s sake, here’s what the original version sounds like:

01. Nine Inch Nails – Zoo Station
02. U2 (Jacques Lu Cont Mix) – Even Better Than The Real Thing
