In advance of Horehound’s July 13th release, fans can experience the album for the first time today, exclusively on iLike. Horehound was produced by Jack White on his Third Man Records imprint and was the first record to ever be recorded at his new Nashville-based studio.
“I feel it, you feel it – we’re all struggling with the trouble that this industry is in right now,” said Jack White. “And it’s not about sales; it’s about beauty and romance and a relationship to art that’s turning invisible, and it’s affecting people’s perception of music. It’s affecting whether they think of it as a viable art, because it’s so disposable. It’s not about being modern or retro or a Luddite or being hopeful or pessimistic about the future; it’s about clinging on to what makes sense of our lives, and what gives our lives value, and what gives us a commonality and a feeling of belonging.”
The Dead Weather
Jack White plays drums, produces and splits lead vocals with Alison Mosshart (The Kills) while Dean Fertita (Queens of the Stone Age) plays guitar and Jack Lawrence (The Raconteurs) plays bass.
The impetus for The Dead Weather came when Alison Mosshart’s band The Kills opened on a few US tour dates for The Raconteurs. Jack White was given doctor’s orders to take it easy on the vocals, so he invited Alison to sing a few songs onstage. Immediately recognizing the musical synergy, the trio devised a plot to record together during some down time in White’s own Third Man Recording Studio in Nashville. White then enlisted the addition of erstwhile Raconteurs’ touring accomplice and Queens Of The Stone Age collaborator Dean Fertita. What was initially imagined as a one-off collaboration for a 7” single release turned into a full-length album once the quartet switched on the recording tape.
