Listen to Brittany Howard (Alabama Shakes) and Ruby Amanfu’s (Jack White’s “Love Interruption”) new Third Man Records singleBy Ricardo Baca | March 4th, 2013 | No Comments »
It sounds like a fierce, formidable collaboration: Alabama Shakes frontwoman Brittany Howard paired with Jack Whiteâ€™s buddy Ruby Amanfu, who harmonized with the guitarist on his solo hit â€śLove Interruption.â€ť
Howard and Amanfu will release a single on Whiteâ€™s Third Man Records on March 12, covering Rodriguezâ€™s â€śI Wonderâ€ť (popularized in the Oscar-winning doc â€śSearching for Sugar Manâ€ť) and Memphis Minnieâ€™s â€śWhen My Man Comes Home,â€ť the label announced today. Presales are available already, but listen to the B-side take on Memphis Minnieâ€™s song here.
The two women are already known and celebrated for their individual work. Howardâ€™s Alabama Shakes were nominated for a Grammy and continue to dominate on the road, and Amanfu has already been through the major label routine, having landed with White on one of 2012â€™s most delightful duets.
