Hear Jack White cover Hank Williams! Pretty awesome. It’s from the upcoming tribute record out tomorrow. From Rolling Stone: The Lost Notebooks of Hank Williams, a new collection of previously unheard songs performed by the country great recorded by artists including Bob Dylan, Jack White, Norah Jones and Levon Helm. The songs in the set were rescued from notebooks left behind by Williams after he died in 1953 at the age of 29, but were completed by the artists, who each put their own distinct spin on the raw material. Jack White’s “You Know That I Know” is a highlight of the set that finds the White Stripes frontman tapping into the country folk magic of Williams’ body of work while staying true to his own voice. The album will hit stores tomorrow, but you can preview the song today. CLICK HERE TO STREAM AT ROLLING STONE
