It’s not unusual for Jack White to collaborate with fellow musos that fans might not necessarily expect. For example, last year White got together with Insane Clown Posse to cover Mozart. Then at the beginning of this year White recruited accomplished crooner Tom Jones to record new arrangements of Howlin Wolf’s Evil and Frankie Lane’s Jezebel.
The two tracks were produced by White and released via his label Third Man Records as part of the Blue Series, which has also included artists such as Beck. Now, somewhat unsurprisingly, Jones wants to once again work with White and possibly have the former White Stripes member help him record an entire album.
During a backstage interview at V Festival with NME, Jones spoke about how the two first became involved in recording together, and then he opened up about his desire to work again with White in the future.
“Jack White had an idea for two songs: Evil and Jezabel, which is an old Frankie Lane song and he had a new arrangement for it. So he said to me, ‘Do you know these songs?’ and I said, ‘Yes, I know both of them’,” Jones told NME.
“I was in Nashville at the time so we got together and we did the two songs. I’d love to do an album with Jack White in the future.”
