Jack White Reveals That Kanye West Asked Him to Guest on 'Yeezus'
Jack White has revealed that Kanye West asked him to guest on his album "Yeezus."

In a new interview with Rolling Stone, the former White Stripes frontman reveals (via NME) that the rapper sounded him out about a possible collaboration but that he never followed up his initial interest.

Despite the collaboration failing to materialise, White praised West's live shows for "Yeezus" and said he had been blown away by the hip-hop star in concert. "That might have been the greatest show I've seen in my life," he said. "It was more punk, more in-your-face than anything I've seen." White also confirmed that he had worked on tracks with Jay Z which was never released and stated: "I'm not sure he liked them."

Last week, White unveiled a new song titled "Just One Drink." The track comes from the singer's new album, "Lazaretto," which comes out on June 9 and also features the previously released "High Ball Stepper" and the album's title track.

A special vinyl "Ultra" version of "Lazaretto" will be available. The 180 gram release will feature two vinyl-only hidden tracks, which will be situated under the labels on the record, with one playing at 78 rpm and one at 45 rpm, making the release a three-speed album. The mix of the album will also be different from the digital and CD release and have a different running order.

Jack White will appear at London's Eventim Apollo on July 5. This is White's second scheduled appearance in the UK this summer, and will come after he plays Glastonbury festival's Pyramid Stage in June.
