The Genius Of... Jack White #7

#7: Love Interruption by Jack White

This is probably the best track Jack White made post-White Stripes. It's also one of the least Jack White tracks Jack White has ever made. Love Interruption is a soul duet featuring Ghanaian singer Ruby Amanfu and revolves around some brilliant Wurlitzer work from Brooke Waggoner giving the song a slight Son Of A Preacher Man feel. Accompanied by Jack's acoustic guitar and a couple of clarinets, the vocal and keyboard centrepieces compete for top billing, but the vocals just win out.

Those of us upset by the confirmation of the White Stripes split found ample comfort in this. Clearly, Jack still had a lot of amazing stuff in his locker. While his debut solo album had much to admire and enjoy, nothing else quite reached the sublime quality of Love Interruption

And by way of a bonus, take a look at the marvellous, wonderful, delightful First Aid Kit performing a cover of Love Interruption for BBC 6 Music.
