The promo clip for the second single from 'Blunderbuss' sees White tied up in the back seat of a car
Jack White has premiered the strange video for his current single, ‘Sixteen Saltines’. Scroll down to watch the clip.
The video for the follow-up to White’s debut solo single ‘Love Interruption’ is directed by AG Rojas and features children being tattooed, vicious looking dogs, a kid in a coffin and White himself tied up in the back seat of a car while someone dowses the vehicle with petrol. ‘Sixteen Saltines’ in out now on 7″ and digital download.
On April 1, Jack White released ‘Freedom At 21’, another new track from his forthcoming debut solo album ‘Blunderbuss’, by the method of helium balloon. The balloons were accompanied by custom postcards with instructions for the finder to submit photos and notify the label about where they discovered the disc.
‘Blunderbuss’ is due to be released on April 23. Speaking to NME in a world exclusive interview last month, White explained that there was “absolutely no chance” he would ever reform The White Stripes, which also featured his ex-wife Meg White, adding that he would only consider it if he “went bankrupt”.
He said: “I’m not the kind of person that would retire from baseball and come out of retirement the next year. I mean, if we went to all the trouble of telling people we’re done, we meant it you know?”
Jack White is due to play his debut UK solo gigs in June, starting with a date at London’s O2 Academy Brixton on June 21. A gig at the capital’s HMV Hammersmith Apollo is scheduled for the following night (22), with a slot at Radio 1’s Hackney Weekend (23-24) also pencilled in.
