Back when Conan O’Brien was hosing Late Night, Jack White showed up as often as he possibly could; the White Stripes, as it happens, were Conan’s final Late Night musical guests. And now, it’s starting to look like White is forging a similar bond with Jimmy Fallon, Conan’s successor on both Late Night and The Tonight Show. Less than a month ago, White was on The Tonight Show to accompany Neil Young. And last night, as White’s new album Lazaretto was going on sale, he appeared again on the show, this time by himself. On the show’s stage, he blasted through two album songs — a down-home take on “Just One Drink” and, as an online bonus, a feverish and frantic run through the title track. He also sat for an interview with Fallon, sending Fallon into fits of dork-ecstasy by describing all the doodads on the album’s elaborate vinyl edition. Watch both performances and the interview below.
