    Video: Wanda Jackson, Jack White Perform on "Conan"; Jackson Has Kind Words for Elvis Presley

    Wanda Jackson celebrated yesterday's release of her new Jack White-produced album, The Party Ain't Over, on Third Man / Nonesuch Records, with a performance of the song "Funnel of Love" on Conan last night with White and The Third Man House Band. Or, as the Conan site teamcoco.com puts it, "Jackson kicked so much butt last night!"

    Following their performance, Jackson and White moved over to the couch to discuss the new album with Conan O'Brien, and for Jackson to share a few fond memories of her time touring with and, as White reminds us, dating Elvis Presley. Finally, O'Brien, while holding a copy of The Party Ain't Over on vinyl, exhorts his audience: "Get this. It's fantastic!" You can do just that by heading to the Nonesuch Store, where the album is available on vinyl and CD and includes high-quality, 320 kbps MP3s at checkout.

    Wanda Jackson and the new album are the subject of a feature profile from the Associated Press. "Jackson played a pivotal but often overlooked role in the history of rock 'n' roll," writes the AP's Chris Talbott by way of background on the famed singer. "The diminutive dynamo's knives-out vocal delivery helped lay the groundwork for all the women of rock and launched a 50-plus year career that has taken her around the world several times."

    David Byrne's Nonesuch Records debut album, Grown Backwards, first released on March 16, 2004, will make its vinyl debut almost 15 years later, on March 15, 2019. The double-vinyl edition is the original album plus six additional tracks, including a duet with Caetano Veloso on their song "Dreamworld." It's "one of Byrne's most rewarding experiments yet," said the Guardian. "It fits alongside the best of his career and adds another solid release to a solo catalog which will hopefully become more cherished in time," said Pitchfork in 2004. "In 20 years, as we straighten our faces with botulism, braces, and stem cells, the album will stand up." Pre-order now in the Nonesuch Store.
