Michael Kiwanuka And Jack White Team Up On New Third Man Records Single 'You've Got Nothing To Lose'

Third Man Records is delighted to present Michael Kiwanuka's contribution to the TMR Blue Series of releases.

Ahead of his new album sessions for the follow up to his gold-certified debut album 'Home Again', Kiwanuka has been busy performing live across the globe. He made his way through Nashville this past summer with just enough pause and aplomb to commit a couple of recordings to tape. 

With Jack White in the producer's chair, the A-side 'You've Got Nothing to Lose' is an original composition, featuring The Buzzards' Dominic Davis on upright bass and Cory Younts on piano, joined also by fellow balladeer Lillie Mae Rische on fiddle. 

Kiwanuka: "I'm a big fan of Jack White. I used to hear his guitar riffs in secondary school growing up as a teenager. He inspired loads of us to start bands and pick up a guitar which I did. He's an artist that still inspires me today, so it was such a pleasure getting to work with him, and put out this single on Third Man Records."  

The video is directed by Nashville-based critic and director/curator for Third Man Records' Light & Sound Machine film series James Cathart. It is a powerful reflection on acceptance and misconception; the story unfolds as a woman gets ready to attend her young son's birthday party. Cathart explains his concept for the video: "Michael's song has this air about it - of a father figure imparting wisdom. So I looked for an unexpected context to apply that to. It's about misleading perceptions - not just in terms of the character's gender, but also from what we expect of the people she encounters. Acceptance comes from a camo-clad country boy, while it's the presumably enlightened young person that harasses her on the bus. we were able to strike just the right tone: sweetness tainted by melancholy.or perhaps it's the other way around? We've all had bittersweet birthdays."
