Dwight Yoakam & Jack White to Record Classic Tunes

DwightYoakam002Dwight Yoakam Teams With Jack White to Record Two Classics

Dwight Yoakam is like a bottle of bourbon from his home state of Kentucky—he just keeps getting better with age. On June 10, the master of honky-tonking, hip-shaking and heartbreaking is giving fans a little something to sip on: two new tunes.

dwightyoakamSDwight teamed with Jack White at his Third Man Studio in Nashville to record two classic songs—“Tomorrow’s Gonna Be Another Day” and “High on the Mountain of Love”—as part of Jack’s Blue Series, which has featured artists such as Beck, Tom Jones and Shovels & Rope, among others.

“Tomorrow’s Gonna Be Another Day” was originally featured on the Monkeys’ 1966 self-titled debut album, while “High on the Mountain of Love” was written and recorded by Harold Dorman in 1960 before being covered by a bevy of artists, including Kenny Lynch (1960), Johnny Rivers (1964), the Beach Boys (1965) and Charley Pride (1981).

You don’t have to go back very far in Dwight’s catalog to hear the influences of the Beach Boys. Check out the soaring harmonies on the guitar-propelled “In Another World” from Dwight’s 2015 album, Second Hand Heart, for more than a hint of Brian Wilson and company.

As part of the Blue Series, singers and bands traveling through Nashville are invited to Third Man Studio to record a song or two to be produced by Jack, who then releases the songs as soon as possible on 7-inch vinyl and digitally. Dwight’s new tunes will be released on June 10, available for pre-order now.
