It's part of a 20th Anniversary Achtung Baby tribute compilation.
We weren't aware that Mr. Jack White was a big fan of Bono and co – though he did team up with The Edge (and Jimmy Page) for guitar documentary It Might Get Loud – so it's a treat to hear him tackle 'Love Is Blindness' from 1991's seminal, game-changing Achtung Baby album.
Jack White joins 11 other artists keen to pay homage to the Dublin megaband and one of their finest LPs. The likes of The Killers, Depeche Mode, Nine Inch Nails and Patti Smith all offer up their versions of Achtung Baby songs on a new tribute CD bundled with Q Magazine from October 26.
It marks both the 20th Anniversary of Achtung Baby and the 25th Anniversary of Q itself.
