Brittany Howard (Alabama Shakes) & Ruby Amanfu - I Wonder / When My Man Comes Home [7''] (Rodriguez and Memphis Minnie covers)
Third Man Records is as excited as we are proud to announce a once in a lifetime pairing of two of modern music's leading ladies, as Brittany Howard and Ruby Amanfu join forces for the ''I Wonder'' b/w ''When My Man Comes Home'' single (TMR 201).
The new single features the Grammy-nominated Alabama Shakes frontwoman teaming up with the Third Man family member who first caught our ears on Jack White's ''Love Interruption'' for two reinterpretations of boldly contrasting source material: Side A features their take on ''I Wonder,'' originally performed by Rodriguez, subject of the Oscar-winning documentary Searching For Sugar Man, while side B finds Howard also picking up her acoustic guitar as the two sing their version of ''When My Man Comes Home,'' originally recorded by Memphis Minnie, the immortal composer of ''When The Levee Breaks'' among others.
The single also features The Buzzards' (Jack White's male backing band) Dominic Davis on electric and upright bass, Daru Jones on drums, Cory Younts on piano, Ikey Owens on keys and Hammond B3 and Fats Kaplin on electric guitar, lap steel and mandolin.
