The album was recorded live to tape over four days at Jack White’s Third Man studio in Nashville. It features 16 traditional tunes by bluegrass legends like The Monroe Brothers, The Louvin Brothers, Jimmy Martin, and Flatt & Scruggs. The duo makes for "a rip-roaring partnership," says the New York Times. "Bluegrass, in their hands, gets roughed up in the best possible way, with skill and fervor, and a touch of abandon."

    To pick up a copy of Sleep With One Eye Open, head to the Nonesuch Store, where orders include orders include high-quality, 320 kbps MP3s of the complete album along with the bonus track "Sophronie."
