Gotcha Covered: Jack White Covers “Blue Light, Red Light (Someone’s There)”

I’m sure we’ve all heard the crazy “news” stories involving Jack White, for example his tour rider with accompanying guacamole recipe — but here at the GATRS, we don’t care about that, we care about the music.
Last November, Jack White released the Lazaretto track for Would You Fight For My Love as a 7-inch with a B-Side cover of Dean Fertita’s Parallel and now Third Man Records (his own record label) will do the same thing with That Black Bat Licorice and Blue Light, Red Light (Someone’s There). It will be re-released as a 7-inch single that includes the Harry Connick, Jr. cover as a B-Side.
The song was originally released in 1991 and was the leading track on Connick, Jr.’s album Blue Light. Though the original recording is distinctly jazzy for the early ’90s, Jack puts his classic spin on it making it bigger with an enormous sound that you want to blast through the speakers. It sounds as if it would be perfect for Broadway, that bass and the horns… Can’t get enough of it.

Listen below.
The “That Black Bat Licorice” 7″ is out 2/17 via Third Man.

The most important thing to know about me is that I'm a melomaniac and shameless fangirl. I am addicted to concerts, they are my sanctuary and safe haven. When I'm on the front row on the barricade of a concert... I feel that I am truly home. I'm also a proud and happy vinyl crate-digger. Whether it's searching for vinyl at flea markets, garage sales, vintage shops... I am a sucker for the crackling of a good record when the needle drops on a turntable. I am a true Cancer with Moon in Cancer. Social Media: @youthquakermimi
