Third Man Records is delighted to present Michael Kiwanuka's contribution to the TMR Blue Series of releases. Available to order on vinyl and through iTunes from today.

Ahead of his new album sessions for the follow up to his gold-certified debut album 'Home Again', Kiwanuka has been busy performing live across the globe. He made his way through Nashville this past summer with just enough pause and aplomb to commit a couple of recordings to tape.

With Jack White in the producer's chair, the A-side 'You've Got Nothing to Lose' is an original composition, featuring The Buzzards' Dominic Davis on upright bass and Cory Younts on piano, joined also by fellow balladeer Lillie Mae Rische on fiddle.

The single also features a chilling rendition of Townes Van Zandt's infamous 'Waitin' 'Round to Die' on the B-side, the perfect complement to the timbre and mood of the A-side.

Kiwanuka: 'I'm a big fan of Jack White. I used to hear his guitar riffs in secondary school growing up as a teenager. He inspired loads of us to start bands and pick up a guitar which I did. He's an artist that still inspires me today, so it was such a pleasure getting to work with him, and put out this single on Third Man Records.'
