Jack White Unleashes Debut Solo Video, Announces Tour Dates
Last month the Dead Weather / Raconteurs / ex-White Stripes mastermind Jack White finally made the plunge into solo territory, releasing ‘Love Interruption,’ the lead single off his debut solo album, ‘Blunderbuss.’ Now he’s unveiled a video for the track.
The song is a stripped-down, bluesy number featuring White duetting with a mysterious woman who was later revealed to be Nashville-based singer-songwriter Ruby Amanfu. “Confirmed. I am the lucky one,” Amanfu wrote in a post on her Twitter page. ‘Love Interruption’ is currently for sale in a variety of formats, including a limited-edition, tri-color vinyl 45, while ‘Blunderbuss’ the album drops April 24.
The accompanying video, like the song itself, is a modest affair, featuring White and Amanfu sharing vocal duties on a vintage microphone as they both strum on guitars: his an acoustic, hers a Fender electric. Two women sit in the sparse, curtained background, one plays keyboard and the other a clarinet. The clip, which was also directed by White, has a color palette — all black, blue and grey hues — that lends it a distinctly subdued feel.
Meanwhile, White has announced a handful of dates for his first-ever solo tour, which currently is scheduled to kick off March 10 in Chattanooga, Tenn., and is scheduled through a March 15 gig in Tulsa, Olka. He also has a few festival appearances lined up, including a May 26 gig at the Sasquatch! Music Festival in George, Wash. Check out his complete itinerary below.
