Third Man Records will release two new singles on November 29th, the first is the next episode in the labels Blue Series of 7″ vinyl releases, featuring The Thornbills.
The Thornbills are Michigan cousins Jim Wigand III and Tamara Finlay, between them they harmonise prose with a unique an saturated aesthetic, the themes addressed in their songwriting deal mainly with issues of perception versus reality and are executed in crystalline folk tunes.
For the Blue Series The Thornbills have chosen two Jack White produced songs, 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.
Third Man and Nonsuch Records are proud to produce the latest single from the Queen of Rock and First Lady of Rockabilly, Wanda Jackson who brings the latest taste of her signature style to the label.
On the tracks Thunder on the Mountain and Dust on the Bible, Jackson is joined by new friend, producer and Third Man Records founder Jack White, along with help from 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.
