Courtney Barnett teams up with Jack White to pay tribute to an Aussie rock legend

Aussie gem Courtney Barnett has hooked up with Jack White at his very own Third Man Studio in Nashville to record two new songs, one of which is a cover of Rowland S. Howard's timeless "Shivers". The other, a sequel of sorts to Barnett's "Boxing Day Blues", will be released on a limited edition vinyl later this month; for now, Barnett and White's spine-tingling version of "Shivers" is our first taste of what this duo are capable of: beautiful, emotive, good ol' fashioned rock n roll.

New Music Video: Jack White "Would You Fight For My Love?" (2014)

It seems Jack White has become a fan of giving himself a very tight deadline. Back when his current album Lazaretto wasn' released yet, the revered artist performed and pressed to vinyl the album's title track in less than four hours. Now he's back, giving himself just 24 hours to conceive and create a video for one of the LP's best selections "Would You Fight For My Love?". A brooding White looking equally bright and moody sits at at a bar and trails along the ghostly aesthetic as he sits at a bar looking all dapper and lonely. Check it out below.
