Watch the Dead Weather’s Jack White-Directed Live Video for ‘Be Still’
Directed by Jack White and edited by White and Brad Holland, the video conforms to the same style that’s been seen in the clips for “I Feel Love (Every Million Miles)” and “Mile Markers.” The video, filmed in black and white, captures White, Alison Mosshart, Jack Lawrence and Dean Fertita performing in the ex-White Stripes leader’s Third Man Records in Nashville. As was the case with the previous two videos, the band is surrounded by strange mannequin-esque figures sporting bodysuits. Oh, and keep an eye out for the ram that makes a cameo at the 1:45 mark.
Dodge and Burn is due out tomorrow (Sept. 25) via Third Man. Before then, the album is streaming in full at Tidal and Third Man Vault. If you’re not a subscriber, you can listen to 30-second previews or check out the other songs that have already surfaced: “Buzzkill(er),” “Too Late” and “Cop and Go.” Digital pre-orders can be made at iTunes or grab the LP on vinyl or CD at this location.
Though it’s been five years since the Dead Weather released their last album, Sea of Cowards, Mosshart says the band's creative process makes new material come naturally.
“There’s not a lot of thought put into the writing of the music,” Mosshart told Entertainment Weekly of the Dead Weather’s latest effort. “It’s really just a human, organic explosion.”
