Published in Blog Archive, Culture Bully. Tags: , .

Today marks the release of Wanda Jackson’s new video from The Party Ain’t Over, the Queen of Rockabilly’s first new album since 2006′s I Remember Elvis. Produced by Jack White and released via his Third Man Records imprint, the album boasts a wide range of contributing artists including Karen Elson, the Dead Weather’s Jack Lawrence, the Raconteurs’ Patrick Keeler, Ashley Monroe and Patti Smith’s son Jackson Smith. The duo, White and Jackson, first came together to record a rendition of Amy Winehouse’s “You Know I’m No Good” in 2009; a track which Jackson recently performed on Jools Holland’s annual BBC Hootenanny. The set of new recordings is rounded out with another 10 tracks including a rendition of Bob Dylan’s “Thunder on the Mountain,” which saw its accompanying music video released today over at AOL. “Jack wanted me to do a Bob song,” Jackson explained to Spinner. “They’re longstanding friends and Bob suggested ‘Thunder on the Mountain.’” Whatever the scenario: it works.

Jackson will be taking to the stage at Third Man Records in Nashville tonight for a performance alongside White and the Third Man House Band, before kicking off a brief tour which will see the legend take the stages of the Late Show with David Letterman (Jan. 20) and Conan (Jan. 25) with her all-star band in support.
