Jack White Covers Dean Fertita's "Parallel"

Jack White just released a his Lazaretto track “Would You Fight For My Love?” as a single, with the B-side featuring a cover of touring band member Dean Fertita’s “Parallel”, which was co-written with Brendan Benson. Fertita, who tours with White during his solo efforts and is also a member of the Dead Weather, The Raconteurs and Queens of the Stone Age, released "Parallel" in 1999 as part of his debut solo effort, Hello=Fire.

Needless to say, White's cover is electric. Building slowly from its harmonic, twangy beginnings, White's version turns rock rampant before the first chorus. While it sways in and out of country lullaby, soon enough, every instrument is on deck, jamming alongside White's urgent howl.

This is an anthem for the books. Yowzas.
