Jack White "Power of My Love" (Elvis cover) (live)
Published Apr 22, 2014When Jack White unveiled his speedily released Record Store Day live single "Lazaretto" this weekend, it came backed with a cover of Elvis Presley's "Power of My Love." Now, that B-side has emerged online.
As is White's usual M.O., his version preserves the original's bluesy style while speeding up the tempo and added a strain of frenzied heaviness. There are a couple of freaky guitar solos, while the vinyl rip adds an undercurrent of crackly static to the whole thing.

Lazaretto will be out on June 10 through Third Man Records/Columbia. "Power of My Love" won't be on it.
