As promised, the former White Stripes man released the video, which he also directed, for St Valentine’s Day. The track sees him work with singer Ruby Amanfu, who provides backing vocals, and Emily Bowland on bass clarinet and Brooke Wagonner on Wurlitzer electric piano.
White has also announced plans for his debut solo live shows, which will take place in March in the United States.
Prior to his show at Radio 1’s Hackney Weekend on June 23-24, alongside Lana Del Rey and The Maccabees, White will play a number of Stateside shows, appearing in Chattanooga, Birmingham, Memphis and Tulsa.
White’s debut solo album ‘Blunderbuss’, produced by the man himself and recorded at his Third Man Studio in Nashville, will be released on April 23. Of the album, he said it was a record he “couldn’t have released until now”.
He said: “I’ve put off making records under my own name for a long time but these songs feel like they could only be presented under my name. These songs were written from scratch, had nothing to do with anyone or anything else but my own expression, my own colours on my own canvas.”
Jack White will play:
Chattanooga Track 29 (March 10)
Birmingham WorkPlay Soundstage (12)
Memphis New Daisy Theatre (13)
Tulsa Cain’s Ballroom (15)
