Jack White’s New Single Will Be Released via X-Ray

February 5, 2013 | Andy Cush

Jack White has outdone himself this time. The man who fronted one of the greatest bands of his generation, who collaborated with Insane Clown Posse to reinterpret Mozart, who got Stephen Colbert to release a garage rock single, is releasing his next project on old medical X-Ray printouts cut with grooves so they can be played like records (just like Russians did back in the day). The press release refers to the new format as FLEX-RAY (har har har).

But what of the actual music, you say? The three-song 7″ finds White collaborating with Butthole Surfers frontman Gibby Haynes on a pair of originals and one cover–of Adrenalin OD’s “Paul’s Not Home.” Love you Jack, but it’s hard to imagine the songs living up to the unique presentation. Available January 14th, just in time for Valentine’s Day.
