Alison Mosshart (The Kills, The Dead Weather), has shared her second solo song ‘It Ain’t Water’, following on from the release of ‘Rise’ last month.
Written late last year, ‘It Ain’t Water’ was recorded with Alain Johannes (Queens of the Stone Age, PJ Harvey). Mosshart had been sitting on the track for quite some time, and every time the singer found herself battling a bout of writer’s block, she’d pick up her guitar and sing it.
On working with Alain Johannes, Alison said “Working with Alain on ‘It Ain’t Water’ was a blast. He’s such a talent and such a kind person. His mind is wide open.

“He understands and sees the beauty in imperfection, magic moments, accidents – the soulful human stuff, and the spirited super-human hard to explain stuff that makes a song great. Working with him was an honor, and also, hot damn he can play any instrument like a champ… like he invented the instrument himself. Alain Johannes IS music.”
Fierce and fiery, a no-nonsense firestarter, Alison Mosshart is hardly a stranger to taking chances. Best known as one-half of acclaimed duo The Kills, when she’s not moonlighting as Baby Ruthless – the gnarly lead singer of blues-punk foursome The Dead Weather – Mosshart is a forever moving force.
Over the years she’s collaborated with everyone from her Dead Weather bandmate Jack White to Arctic Monkeys, Primal Scream, Gang Of Four, Cage The Elephant, Foo Fighters, James Williamson and Mini Mansions. But her new and boldest move yet finds her embracing her solo bonafides.
