And the Jack White-produced singles-palooza continues. This time, the [insert Jack White role here] mastermind has produced new singles for rockabilly legend Wanda Jackson and Michigan duo The Thornbills and will release both the efforts via his personal imprint, Third Man Records.
The Jackson single, which consists of the Bob Dylan-penned “Thunder On The Mountain b/w “Dust On The Bible”, comes ahead the release her new studio album, The Party Ain’t Over, also produced by White. Both the single and the album feature the talents of White’s wife Karen Elson, The Raconteurs’ Jack Lawrence and Patrick Keeler, Patti Smith’s son/Meg White’s husband Jackson Smith, and My Morning Jacket’s Carl Broemel. White stepped from behind the soundboard to jam, too.
The “Thunder On The Mountain” single will be available November 23rd. 100 Tri Color versions of the 7 single will be available from Guestroom Records in Oklahoma on November 26th, split between their Norman and Oklahoma City locations (50 each), and 50 Tri Colors will be inserted in random Third Man mail orders. The Party Ain’t Over follows on January 25th via Third Man/Nonesuch.
Also available November 23rd will be a 7″ single from The Thornbills. Consisting of Michigan based cousins Jim Wigand III and Tamara Finlay, the duo recorded two Jack White produced songs — “Uncle Andrei” and “Square Peg”. Along with the standard single, 50 Tri Color versions of the 7 will be available from Car City records in Detroit, MI on November 23rd, 50 available in random Third Man mail orders, and 50 directly from the band at their record release show to be announced at a later date. In addition to the single, Third Man Records Vault members will be able to download a bonus track My Star off of the Vault site. The track will also come as a bonus to those who purchase the single on iTunes.
