Two women plus Third Man equals some sweet music: Alabama Shakes frontwoman Brittany Howard has teamed up with Ruby Amanfu (a.k.a. Jack White’s better half on “Love Interruption”) to cover Memphis Minnie’s classic “When My Man Comes Home” for White’s Third Man records, and you can hear it exclusively here.
The duet was recorded as part of Third Man’s “Blue Series”, which includes past alumni from Beck and Tom Jones to rockabilly legend Wanda Jackson and the Butthole Surfers’ Gibby Haynes. It’s one of two songs the pair made together — the other one being a cover of “I Wonder” by Rodriguez, the subject of the recent Oscar-nabbing doc Searching for Sugar Man — and they’ll both be released as a vinyl single on March 12.
