The Dead Weather @ Home Sweet Home in July (more by Ryan Muir)
Dead Weather

The Dead Weather will be performing at Music Hall of Williamsburg tonight (11/17) with an opening set by Ecstatic Peace-signed Australians Violent Soho. To go with that, some other Jack White news...

Jack White will be working with "Queen of Rockabilly" Wanda Jackson. The pairing sounds similar to what White did with Loretta Lynn for her 2004, Grammy-winning record Van Lear Rose, but Jackson says, "They had a super album, but he didn't have her do anything different, you know. She just did her little Loretta Lynn songs. But he told me he's gonna stretch me some, so we'll see." A 2009 Rock n Roll Hall of Fame nominee, Wanda recently performed at the Ponderosa Stomp in New Orleans.

One album White will not be helping with is the new record from Slash. On the nature of that, Slash said, "I wanted to get Jack White to sing on something, but he didn't want to sing. He said 'I'll play drums, I'll play guitar, but I don't wanna sing.'" Slash did manage to get "Dave Grohl, Alice Cooper, Ozzy Osbourne, Dave Grohl, Flea and three of former Guns N' Roses bandmates, Izzy Stradlin, Steven Adler and Duff McKagan" though.

Another project White has had a hand in putting out is composer John Boswell's remix of Carl Sagan's "Cosmos" series called "A Glorious Dawn." The song puts a beat under Sagan's auto-tuned narration and features a guest spot from Stephen Hawking. The track, on YouTube since September (below), is out now through White's Third Man Records.

The Dead Weather also just put out a record of their own, an unannounced EP called Live from Third Man West, which features five songs and four videos from their performance at a promotional pop-up store in Los Angeles in August (similar to what they did in New York in July). You can get it through iTunes.

The Dead Weather play Wednesday too (November 18th) at the mtvU Woodie Awards at Roseland Ballroom, and travel to New Zealand, Australia and Japan in March, 2010.

All the guns and roses members equal nothing without axl rose.

I dunno about that guns and roses comment... I know from at least 2 reliable sources that slash can cook up amazing hummus, and that equals something.

jack white doesn't do scifi soundtrack music, he's just releasing that on his imprint because he presumably enjoyed the track. reading comprehension fail loser.

No you fail to understand that Jack should stick to boring rock rehash of his own records and leave the Boswell remix of Sagan release to a better more fitting label.

"to a better more fitting label"

Regardless of any of the other comments, this band really sucks. I want the WS & Racs back, please.

How anyone can like the WS and not like songs like New Pony and 60ft tall is beyond me. JW has more talent and ambition than one group can harness.

Wow, he got Dave Grohl twice!

The Chick singer sounds like Jack... when they trade vocals, it is hard to tell who is who
