Today Jack White hit us all hard enough to leave us black ‘n’ blue with double vision as he unleashed the brand new Dori Oskowitz-directed video for “I’m Shakin‘”. Jack’s cover of Little Willie John‘s classic “I’m Shakin'” is the fourth single from his universally acclaimed debut album Blunderbuss (Third Man/Columbia).
Today Jack White released “Freedom at 21,” the third video from his universally acclaimed debut record Blunderbuss (Third Man/Columbia).
Directed by Hype Williams, whose trailblazing 1990s work with 2Pac, The Notorious B.I.G. and Missy Elliott defined the modern hip hop visual aesthetic-and whose more recent clips for Kanye West and Nicki Minaj expanded it that much further.
Jack White‘s self-directed video for “Love Interruption,” from his upcoming debut album Blunderbuss, out April 23/24 on Third Man Records, debuts today, and we are fortunate enough to have it right here for you. As on the single, the video features back-up vocalist Ruby Amanfu, clarinet/bass clarinet player Emily Bowland and Brooke Waggoner on Wurlitzer electric piano.
Third Man Records has partnered with Brightspark Travel to create “School Choirs & Bands at Third Man: A Vinyl Recording Experience,” a one of a kind program offering students behind-the-scenes access to Jack White’s Third Man Records in Nashville, TN, as well as the chance to record their own 7” 45rpm vinyl records.
British duo Smoke Fairies’ released their first U.S. full-length debut on June 14. The 11 track album, Through Low Light and Trees, highlights the harmonies of small town best mates Jessica Davies and Katherine Balmire and is produced by Head (known for his work with PJ Harvey and others).
First is Live in Mississippi, a recording of the White Stripes’ final live concert from July 31st, 2007 in Southaven, Mississippi. Presented in crystalline audio quality and spread across 2 LP’s pressed on 180-gram vinyl, this recording is (arguably) the band at the top of their game. With the local geography looming large on their minds, the set list is decidedly heavy on the blues and features covers of songs by Robert Johnson, Son House and Leadbelly. The rest of the set includes songs from all six of the White Stripes’ studio albums and the show is offered in its entirety.
