Jack White Seen Consorting With Old Man in Church


Jack White’s career apprenticing himself to roots music and its giants might climax with this reworking of “Old Enough,” off the most recent Raconteurs album Consolers of the Lonely. He’s more reverent than ever, convening his band, country singer-songwriter Ashley Monroe, and the golden apostle of bluegrass, Ricky Skaggs, in a church for a warm, countrified version of the song (which is now available on Amazon). With Monroe sweetening the vocals and Skagg’s mandolin replacing the original’s chunky organ, the track sounds less like Bill Monroe than Led Zeppelin (on side two of Zeppelin 3, that is). Autumn de Wilde’s video, which shows smiles all around at the actual recording session, gives everything an even homier glow — watch it after the jump.
