Following the last episode of Jack White’s three-part documentary American Epic, the artist shared another musical collaboration, this time featuring Elton John.
The track features Elton John performing on piano and handling the lead vocals while Jack White plays guitar and lends occasional harmonies. John had been asked to improvise a new song from lyrics that his longtime collaborator Bernie Taupin handed him, and the result was recorded directly to wax.
“Two Fingers Of Whiskey” has a soulful, classic feel, and finds Elton John in top form.
The American Epic Sessions will be released digitally and physically on June 9, with a vinyl edition to follow on June 16.
