At the early age of 38, Jack White has accomplished more than most musicians could ever imagine — he’s collaborated with Bob Dylan, the Rolling Stones, Beck and Loretta Lynn among others, he’s a world-renowned musician, guitar player extraordinaire, producer, record company founder, and the list just goes on. To honor the modern master for his work and dedication, Cleopatra Records has turned the tables on the tribute album tradition by curating a group musicians who influenced Jack White to record an album of Jack White covers.
The album, entitled Rockin’ Legends Pay Tribute To Jack White, includes covers by rockabilly legends Wanda Jackson, Gary U.S. Bonds, Sonny Burgess, and more. Check out the rest of the artist roster and tracklist below (although the order has yet to be confirmed).
If you’re itching to see what the record has in store, you can get a taste listening to Wanda Jackson’s cover of White’s “In the Cold, Cold Night” at Rolling Stone.
Rockin’ Legends Pay Tribute To Jack White will be out on November 19.
