Having recently won the 2014 Grammy for Best Rock Performance, Jack White wastes no time in adding to his list of achievements by following up with a stellar rendition of Harry Connick Jr.’s big band classic “Blue Light, Red Light (Someone’s There).”
The cover comes to us in form of a B-side to White’s new 7” release for his latest Lazaretto single “That Black Bat Licorice” – a trick he’s pulled before, with his release of “Would You Fight For My Love?” in November of last year.
As is typical of the “Seven Nation Army” rocker, Jack White retains the grandeur of the original whilst adding his own distinct feel. With “Blue Light, Red Light (Someone’s There)”, White preserves Connick Jr.’s big band flare and loungey jazz, simultaneously letting loose vibrant barrelhouse-style piano sections and White’s own panting guitars, funky riffs and gritty blues grooves.
Definitely not a cover to miss out on – listen down below.
