Jack White is getting around these days. White recently had the opportunity to work with one of his all-time influences; the Dex Romweber Duo -- whom White notes as one of the best kept secrets of the rock 'n' roll underground. The results of this union will be released as a 7" in late May on White's new label, Third Man.
White and the infamous rockabilly musician Romweber teamed up last week and threw down some tracks in White's Nashville home. White produced the track and it was engineered by Vance Powell. According to an interview with Sara Romweber, the drummer for the duo, the collaboration between the two was a long time coming, saying, "At one point, Dex was in the room with his guitar and Jack was behind the control board. Jack had the biggest smile on his face and he said, 'You have no idea how long I've waited to hear that guitar tone in my studio.'"
Along with the release of the new 7", Dex Romweber is also heading out on the road with the Detroit Cobras for a U.S. tour, and is also releasing his latest record, Ruins of Berlin.
