Jack White Covers U2’s “Love Is Blindness”

Jack White

A little while back, we reported that Jack White was part of an all-star lineup that Q Magazine had put together for an all-star tribute to U2’s Achtung Baby. That landmark album, like so many other landmark albums, turns 20 this year, and Q’s tribute, regrettably titled AHK-toong BAY-bi, features some inspired pairings (Nine Inch Nails doing “Zoo Station” the Killers doing “Ultraviolet (Light My Way)”), and some, uh, not-inspired pairings (Snow Patrol doing “Mysterious Ways”, Gavin Friday doing “The Fly”).

One of the weirder cover choices is Jack White’s noise-blues rendition of the quiet, thoughtful “Love Is Blindness.” Listen to a radio rip of it below.


(H/T Consequence of Sound).

Here’s the AHK-toong BAY-bi tracklist.
01 Nine Inch Nails – “Zoo Station”
02 U2 – “Even Better Than The Real Thing (Jacques Lu Cont Mix)”
03 Damien Rice – “One”
04 Patti Smith – “Until The End Of The World”
05 Garbage – “Who’s Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses”
06 Depeche Mode – “So Cruel”
07 Snow Patrol – “Mysterious Ways”
08 The Fray – “Trying To Throw Your Arms Around The World”
09 Gavin Friday – “The Fly”
10 The Killers – “Ultraviolet (Light My Way)”
