Nonesuch Records announced today that Wanda Jackson's new album, the Jack White-produced The Party Ain't Over, will be upon us Jan. 25 of 2011:

The Party Ain’t Over was recorded in Nashville at White’s studio, where he brought together a formidable band, including himself, Jack Lawrence (The Dead Weather/Raconteurs), Carl Broemel (My Morning Jacket), Patrick Keeler (Raconteurs), Ashley Monroe, Jackson Smith, and Karen Elson, to name a few, and hand picked the songs—11 tracks dating in origin from the early 1900s to 2007. The result: a retro modern collection of music that showcases Wanda, now in her seventh decade and sounding as wickedly charismatic as ever.

As you'll recall, Adam Gold interviewed Jackson for the Cream back in Feb. of '09, and in that interview she called Nashville "a place we love to eat." (She also said she relates to Miley Cyrus, and that she loves playing smaller rooms in front of the young people.) The First Lady of Rockabilly gets her lifetime achievement recognition tonight at the Americana Music Association awards — there is a rumor going around about that — which Jack White will present to her. Gotta say, I'm looking forward to this record. Track listing below:

1. Shakin All Over
2. Rip It Up
3. Busted
4. Rum and Coca-Cola
5. Thunder on the Mountain
6. You Know I’m No Good
7. Like a Baby
8. Nervous Breakdown
9. Dust on the Bible
10. Teach Me Tonight
11. Blue Yodle #6
