RE: JACK WHITE TO APPEAR ON U2 COVER ALBUM

Jack White


Does Jack ever rest? It appears Jack will soon be showing up on an cover album honoring the 20th anniversary of U2's Achtung Baby. Jack will be ding the track "Love is Blindness"

Here's the text from the Rolling Stone article:

"Jack White, Depeche Mode, Patti Smith and Damian Rice are among the artists on a forthcoming tribute album honoring the 20th anniversary of U2ís Achtung Baby, frontman Bono announced at a press conference this afternoon for the U2 documentary From the Sky Down at the Toronto International Film Festival.

The album was commissioned by the British music magazine Q. "Jack White does ĎLove Is Blindness,' Depeche Mode do ĎSo Cruel,' Patti Smith did ĎUntil the End of the World,' Damian Rice does ĎOne.í It just goes on. And itís strange, because when I hear the album, when U2 do it, all I hear is whatís wrong with it. But when I heard all these artists doing it, I thought, ĎItís really good.'"

In addition, Bono said that artist Damien Hirst recently completed a video for "Even Better Than The Real Thing." "He made a very special art work, which has only been shown once and probably wonít be shown again, because [it was for the] Glastonbury festival and itís an extraordinary work of art."

One person asked via Twitter if they were to release a single from Achtung Baby today, which would fit best? Without hesitation, Bono answered, "'Even Better Than The Real Thing.' Now thereís a mix of it, which is stunning, called the Fish Out of Water remix, which I would like to release as a single," he said. "Iím trying to talk some people into it, even today. It has the Damien Hirst thing. Damien did his work to that mix. Thatís the one we open with and end the film with."
