Come on, now.
I’m all for staying relevant, and I’m a big fan of Jackson and her seminal rockabilly work. Jack White has proven himself able to help a legendary female country artist return to her roots, thanks to his seminal work with Loretta Lynn.
But this? It’s way too close to parody for my tastes. She’s mimicking Winehouse, not interpreting the song in her own way. It’s way too one-note and gimmicky for an artist of this stature.
