Third Man Records Announces Two New Releases
Wanda Jackson Thunder On The Mountain &
The Thornbills Uncle Andrei
Third Man Records is announcing the release of two new singles from Wanda Jackson and The Thornbills. Produced by Jack White III, the singles will be released on November 29th in the UK.
Thunder On The Mountain b/w Dust On The Bible
Third Man and Nonesuch Records are now proud to bring us the single “Thunder On The Mountain” b/w “Dust On The Bible”.
Known around the globe as “The Queen Of Rock” and “The First Lady Of Rockabilly,” Wanda Jackson has joined with a new friend and producer Jack White, to bring us this latest taste of her signature flavor. The tracks feature Jack White. Jack Lawrence (The Dead Weather/Raconteurs), Carl Broemel (My Morning Jacket), Patrick Keeler (Raconteurs), Ashley Monroe, Jackson Smith and Karen Elson, to name a few.
“Thunder On The Mountain” is a particularly exceptional track. Originally penned by Bob Dylan and chosen for Mrs. Jackson by the poet himself - his rockabilly fever dream is given new life by the songstress.
Uncle Andrei b/w Square Peg
Michigan cousins, Jim Wigand III and Tamara Finlay are the two voices come together to create The Thornbills. Both ethereal and existential these two harmonize prose with a unique and saturated aesthetic. The themes addressed in their songwriting deal mainly with issues of perception versus reality and are executed in crystalline folk tunes.
Third Man Records presents two Jack White produced songs in their Blue Series of 7” records. “Uncle Andrei” is a mysterious ode, reminiscent of a Russian waltz while “Square Peg” is a driving and charming tune layered with the strum of the guitar and wail of the violin.
