First Aid Kit initially covered The White Stripes’ “We’re Going to Be Friends” alongside Bright Eyes as a contribution to the Cool for School: For the Benefit of the Lunchbox Fund charity compilation. At a July 2nd gig at Paris’ Olympia, Jack White invisted the sisters Söderberg, who are opening for his European tour, on stage for a truer rendition of the song. White, whose Third Man Records released First Aid Kit’s 2011 single “Universal Soldier”, took lead while the girls provided back-up, resulting in a performance that was as happy-go-lucky as any campfire singalong.
