New Dead Weather Album

Jack White’s latest band ‘The Dead Weather’ who presented us with the excellent ‘Horehound’ last year have announced at South by Southwest the details of their second album. ‘Sea of Cowards’ is set for a May 7th release date whilst the first single ‘Die by the Drop’ is to be released tomorrow along with its b-side ‘Old Mary’.

I have no idea how he has managed this seeing how he is currently on tour with the band and has just spilled the beans on a a collaboration he has done with Jay-Z where he has stated:

“I just did a record with Jay-Z… We did a song together a few weeks ago. It was incredible. I played him something that I’ve been kicking around for a while and he immediately came out with words for it. It’s unbelievable-sounding.”

In an interview with MTV, White has mentioned that the tour has not only yielded new songs but has also informed the older tunes. “It’s changing every day, and we want it to change even more. We’ve got a lot more material going and changing a lot of the songs from the first record. We have a lot more cover songs than when we started too.” Which covers have they been playing around with? “It ranges from Christian metal to Christian gospel.”
