Jack White Releases ‘Would You Fight for My Love?’ 7-Inch
For vinyl fanatics, there are few labels better than Jack White’s Third Man Records. If you’ve been keeping an eye on Third Man’s website, you’ve likely noticed the addition of a new 7-inch, White’s latest single, ‘Would You Fight for My Love?’ b/w the non-album B-side cover, ‘Parallel.’
‘Parallel’ was originally written by Dean Fertita -- guitarist for the Dead Weather and touring keyboardist for White -- on his 2009 solo album, ‘Hello=Fire’ (his solo project was also called Hello=Fire). The track was co-written with Brendan Benson, multi-instrumentalist for the Raconteurs. Listen to the original version below:
And now, the song comes full-circle with White’s cover. White puts his signature spin on the tune, and cranks up his folk inspiration. Listen to the B-side below:
The studio track of the cover features White’s touring band, including the late, great Ikey Owens on piano and Moog (Fertita came on-board after Owens passed away).
If you like what you hear and you’re ready to take it for a spin, head to your local indie shop to pick up the 7-inch -- or visit Third Man Records’ official website for more information.
In the meantime, check out the front and back of the 7-inch sleeve:
