On his new 7″ single “Would You Fight For My Love?”, Jack White covers an obscure artist called Hello=Fire. In the ‘Seven Degrees of Jack White’ game though, they’re only a few steps away. Hello=Fire is a project from White’s bandmate in the Raconteurs and the Dead Weather, Dean Fertita. They released one album in 2009, and the closing song “Parallel” was co-written with another Raconteurs bandmate: Brendan Benson.
Where the original was a trippy psych-rock jam, White turns it into a mandolin-and-fiddle country swing, featuring rollicking barrelhouse piano from the late Ikey Owens. Until it explodes that is. Stream it below.
