Jack White Covers Harry Connick Jr.'s 'Blue Light, Red Light (Someone's There)' in Support of Latest Single

If you haven't been completely put off by Jack White and his latest rants then perhaps you'll be surprised to hear his latest cover. The "Seven Nation Army" rocker has covered Harry Connick Jr.'s "Blue Light, Red Light (Someone's There)."

Perhaps it's out of left field but Jack White is anything but predictable. The song, co-written by Connick, hails from his multi-platinum 1991 album Blue Light, Red Light.

Along with the new cover, White has announced a new 7" release for his latest Lazaretto single, "The Black Bat Licorice." The single will be available digitally Feb. 17 and physically on Feb. 23 on Third Man Records.

The single art was also released for the single. Recently, White took to The Tonight Show's stage to perform the single and also welcomed A Tribe Called Quest native Q-Tip on the song during a Madison Square Garden performance.

As Billboard puts it, White's recording borrows heavily from the '90s Big Band revival. Thus, if you removed Jack White's voice and replaced it with Brian Setzer's, it would hardly be noticed.

Without further ado, check out the cover below and be sure to pre-order the vinyl coming from Third Man Records, it's sure to be in a similar vein as is with his recent cover.
