Jack White Performs Two New Songs on ‘Saturday Night Live’

With his first solo album just around the corner, Jack White is cranking up the promotional machine — and last weekend, that meant serving as the musical guest for the March 3 episode of ‘Saturday Night Live.’ Fronting a pair of bands, White performed two tracks from the upcoming ‘Blunderbuss,’ due April 24. Watch the clips below!

For his first number, White hit the stage with an all-female band to perform the album’s first single, ‘Love Interruption’; later in the show, he returned with an all-male combo for a performance of ‘Sixteen Saltines.’ Though ‘SNL’ marked White’s first TV appearance as a solo artist, he didn’t look (or sound) like he had any jitters — both bands ran through the material with plenty of poise, capping a run of musical guests for the show that has included such buzzworthy acts as Sleigh Bells, Bon Iver, and Lana Del Rey.

‘Blunderbuss’ marks something of an artistic renewal for White, who became a serial band-starter after the White Stripes went on hiatus following 2007′s ‘Icky Thump.’ After releasing albums with the Raconteurs and the Dead Weather, he decided to make the move to solo performing because, as he said in the press release announcing the new project, “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 colors on my own canvas.”

Watch the clips below. Are you excited for ‘Blunderbuss,’ or are you still holding out for a White Stripes reunion?
