Here's the second part of their first of two newest singles.

As previously reported, the Dead Weather will release a series of two-song singles leading up to their long-awaited third album that's due out in 2015. The first installment consists of "Open Up (That's Enough)" and "Rough Detective." Now one of the songs from this single is here (via Consequence of Sound). Spotify users can now stream the latter below.

The searing number sees Jack White and Alison Mosshart trading cutting lines as they each play a different role - White the "rough detective with the smoky eyes" and Mosshart the "unusual suspect" always on the lam.

Both "Open Up (That's Enough)" and "Rough Detective" were previously available through Third Man Records' exclusive Vault subscription series as a 7-inch, but have since been released via digital platforms.

    Fucking A!
    I was just about to say that. It reminds me of QOTSA too. Great song.
    Well it does have Dean Fertita in it after all. However I agree and I personally love this song and "Open Up (That's Enough)". Anything Jack White is involved in is gold!
    These guys are bloody awesome, I really like what I'm listening to.
