Jack White is ready to look into your heart on Valentines Day with a new three-song single printed on old medical X-rays. The rocker teamed with Butthole Surfers frontman Gibby Haynes for the Third Man Records release The Gibby Haynes Blues Series, which features three tracks of Haynes on vocals and White on guitar. The record includes two originals, "You Don't Have to be Smart" and "Horse Named George," and a cover of Eighties punk band Adrenalin O.D.'s "Paul's Not Home."

Third Man will release the songs February 14th on seven-inch vinyl (pre-order it through the company's website), with a limited-edition "flex-ray" version available only in the Third Man Records Rolling Record Store at SXSW next month.

White and Third Man Records have also been busy with an archival blues series featuring the complete works of Charley Patton, Blind Willie McTell and the Mississippi Sheiks. White is also scheduled to perform this Sunday at the Grammys, where he's nominated for three awards, including Album of the Year for his solo debut, Blunderbuss.
