Jack White covered Nirvana‘s 1993’s “Heart Shaped Box” during his November 16th concert in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Ultimate-Guitar.com posted video clips of White performing the In Utero favorite while on the road promoting his recent companion albums, Fear Of The Dawn and Entering Heaven Alive.
“Heart Shaped Box” was the lead single from Nirvana’s final studio album, In Utero. The song topped Billboard’s Alternative Songs chart.
Although he has not spoken about specific artists in the past, Jack White has never been afraid to share his opinions, as when he commented on the state of rock music itself a few years back: “It’s changed definitions over the years, y’know? Now it’s sort of an energy drink, isn’t it? So it’s become an iconic sort of T-shirt at Target or something like that. I think that it’s gonna be redefined again in the next 10 years. In more of the ’60s and ’70s, it was such a mystery and untouchable-ness to it. And now like in the age of sort of reality television, so many things are accessible that it’s changing.”
Jack White performs tonight (November 21st) in Christchurch, New Zealand at Christchurch Town Hall.
His next North American show is set for December 3rd at Fort Lauderdale’s Audacy Beach Festival.
