Early Jack White Singles Found Hidden In Furniture

In the early 2000s, Jack White was in the Upholsterers, a short-lived project with fellow Detroit musician and drummer Brian Muldoon (of the Muldoons). The duo pressed 100 copies of their second single, “Your Furniture Was Always Dead … I Was Just Afraid To Tell You,” and then hid them in furniture being reupholstered by… More »

Bestselling Vinyl Of 2014 Includes Jack White, Beck, Lana Del Rey

The comeback is real: vinyl now makes up about 3.5% of album sales — still not a huge number in the scheme of things, but significantly larger than the 0.2% it was pulling in ten years ago. We know that Amazon and Urban Outfitters are going one-two as the biggest vinyl distributors, so what exactly… More »

Jack White Launches THIRD-D Virtual Reality App

When you think of virtual reality, dustbowl fetishist and noted technophobe Jack White is presumably not the first artist who comes to mind. And yet White now has his own Virtual Reality app, though it does, somewhat hilariously, involve using a folded cardboard doohickey to hold your phone up in front of your eyes. White’… More »

Watch Jack White Perform On Ellen & Talk About Injuries & Video Games

Jack White has long been a regular on late-night TV, and now it looks like he’s branching out into daytime as well. Earlier today, White was a guest on Ellen, and it sadly appears that he did not do the dancing-through the audience thing. He did, however, perform the Lazaretto tracks “Would You Fight For… More »

Jack White Announces Big Nashville, NYC, Ellen Gigs

I’ve been to a lot of shows at Madison Square Garden, and the best one I ever saw was probably the White Stripes, with Grinderman and the late Porter Wagoner opening, in 2007. Jack White absolutely owned the Garden that night, stomping and preening and flailing his way across a mostly-unadorned stage. I remember seeing… More »

Foo Fighters Sort Of Respond To Jack White Dis, Jack White Sort Of Apologizes

When he was playing Boston’s Fenway Park last night, Jack White went into a pretty funny tirade against Rolling Stone, and he also made a quick crack about the Foo Fighters having three guitarists onstage “playing the same parts.” Today, the Foo Fighters made their official response on Twitter:… More »

Hear Jack White Clown Rolling Stone, Foo Fighters From The Stage

Last night, Jack White played a show at Boston’s Fenway Park, and he opened it up by making fun of the Foo Fighters for having a second guitarist onstage “playing the same parts” to cover up any mistakes. He then pointed out that you could probably read about his comments on the Rolling Stone website… More »

Dan Rather’s next subject for his Big Interview series is Jack White, and now you can see a short preview for it.

Jack White – “Would You Fight For My Love?” Video

Jack White has a new haircut, and he made a music video to show it off. It’s a relatively bold look, a short-on-top pompadour with some serious muttonchops. It looks good! And it feels like the star of White’s new video for “Would You Fight For My Love?,” the unfulfillment anthem from his Lazaretto album. More »

Watch Jack White’s Acoustic Take Away Show At A French Chateau

La Blogotheque’s “Take Away Shows” video series are a Dogme 95-style thing in which bands perform entirely acoustic in unexpected French locations, with no effects to sweeten the performance. That’s exactly the sort of set of restraints that would appeal to an old-school fetishist like Jack White, the subject of the latest installment. In hi… More »

Watch Nurse Hopper’s Creepy Video From Jack White’s Immersive Medical-Themed Concert

Back in July, Jack White had a shitload of fun putting on a secret show in London built like a piece of interactive theater (and done in collaboration with the acting company that does Sleep No More, that interactive-theater thing everyone has been telling me to see since I moved to New York). It played… More »

Hear Some Of Jack White’s Lazaretto Demos

News recently circulated that Lazaretto, Jack White’s new solo album, has sold more vinyl albums in a single year than anything since Pearl Jam’s Vitalogy in 1994. That’s partly because of how White kept hawking the tricked-out vinyl edition at every opportunity, but it probably helps that the album has some really good songs. And… More »

Osheaga 2014: Lorde, The Replacements, HAIM, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, & More

More than most North American cities, Montreal gets it right when it comes to hosting music festivals. Fortunate enough to have a setting like Parc Jean-Drapeau, located in the heart of the city, a five-minute subway ride from downtown, the Canadian city is able to pull off a music-and-arts festival like Osheaga with relative ease.
