The Raconteurs have dropped a cover of Donovan’s 1965 single “Hey Gyp (Dig The Slowness)” off of their forthcoming record, Help Us Stranger.
Jack White’s gritty four-piece band have taken the twangy, acoustic original and turned it into a grungy crunch-rock banger. With a speedy drum beat, crisp and clangy guitar lines, and distorted vocals, this song is going to make you want to jump along to its heavy, bouncy melody.
Listen to The Raconteurs’ rendition of Donovan’s “Hey Gyp (Dig The Slowness)” and listen to the original tune below.
Help Us Stranger is due on June 21st via Third Man Records.
