 Hear Jack White rapping on Blues On Two Trees

Jack White’s bucket list keeps getting smaller. Despite being in the industry for over a decade, and hanging out with the likes of Jay-Z, he’s only now crossing off “rapping” Yes, “Blues on Two Trees”, the B-side to his forthcoming 7″ single “I’m Shakin'”, sports a deep-fried Mississippi gumbo of distortion, which White urgently spits rhymes over. Call it prophetic or just great timing, but a line like “Three trees lying on the side of the road/ One tree barks, ‘Where the hell do we go?'” is far too haunting to ignore. It begs the question: Shall we call the next hurricane Jack? Throw on a raincoat (if you haven’t already) and decide for yourself below.

Members of Third Man Records’ Vault can stream “Blues on Two Trees” in full here. The “I’m Shakin'” 7″ will be available tomorrow, October 30th, via Third Man Records. Pre-order your physical copy here or download on iTunes.
