Fans of music rejoice...!
http://consequenceofsound.net/2008/1...collaboration/Coming soon to a record store near you: Jack White & Thom Yorke: A Collaboration for the Ages. Alright so maybe the that won’t be the title, but if you believe The White Stripes/Raconteurs frontman’s recent comments, a collaboration between the two high-profile musician is indeed in the works.
White, who is currently recovering from a neck injury which caused him to cancel several European promo dates in support of Quantum of Solace last month, recently revealed that he currently plans to hit the studio with Yorke when he is ready to perform again, “We’ve known each other for a while now. But the doctors said I couldn’t perform for two months. I’ve been writing a lot instead.” While little else is known about the supposed collaboration, the Detroit born guitarist did go on to note that he already has a “few songs ready.”
Talk about one odd collaboration. The anarchic guitar riffs of White meshing with Yorke’s all too elegant vocals? The idea of the whole this is almost as fascinating as any eventual music they create. But given the rather White’s rather vague comments, it’s hard to know what actually to expect. An entire album or another one of those superstar duets put together for some movie soundtrack? Only time will tell.
I wonder if they will ever perform live together... the possibilities are seriously endless...
