[Listen] Jack White - "Love is Blindness" (U2 Cover)

As we mentioned last month UK music magazine Q have put together a compilation album to celebrate the anniversary of U2's Achtung Baby turning 20. Today, Radio 2 premiered Jack White's take on the track "Love is Blindness" and damn you got to love Jack and the way he attacks this full frontal with his plastic guitars and old school methods. He makes the 20 year old track his own and adds in his signature guitar tone whilst leaving in tact enough of Bono and Co's original to make you realise it was once, and always will be a U2 track. Check it out below and peep the full cover album's track-listing after the jump.
