White Stripes - White Blood Cells
|Availability:||OUT OF STOCK|
|Status:||ON BACKORDER. NO TIMEFRAME CAN BE GIVEN.|
The White Stripes returned with their third album in summer of 2001. White Blood Cells features the singles "Hotel Yorba", "Fell in Love with a Girl", "Dead Leaves and the Dirty Ground", and "We're Going to Be Friends".
In February 2001, Jack and Meg White hopped into their trusty Dodge van and made their way down south to Easley-McCain Recording in Memphis, Tennessee. Inspired and electrified by their recent overseas touring and the increasingly rabid reaction to their live performances, the White Stripes would, for the first time, record an album outside of their hometown Detroit.
Continuing the stripped-down garage rock nature of the duo, White Blood Cells features less of the band's blues rock influences, instead displaying a more raw, basic, and primitive rock and roll sound. Virtually all of these songs address a distanced lover. Sometimes he's coming home to see her; other times she's done him some permanent wrong. The lyrics are succinct and direct, and poetic like an aged bluesman.
