New York City's Dough Rollers play hard blues tailored for Jack White – he was impressed enough that his label, Third Man Records, released their 2013 single "Little Lily." On the band's new track "Gone Baby Gone," the quartet continue building on that original sound with soul-drenched despair, where vocalist Malcolm Ford laments the loss of a lover alongside guitarist Jack Bryne's cold, bending riffs.

Despite the noticably loose feel that "Gone Baby Gone" evokes, the band worked on many versions until they got it just right. "[It's] like a distant relative to the song we were rehearsing before we went into the studio," the band told Rolling Stone. "It really transformed into something with a totally different character after we sat with it for a while and kept stripping it down and re-layering it. It became almost a whole new song."

The Dough Rollers new EP will be released sometime this spring via on Third Man Records.

Song Stories

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
