News: Jack White
After surprising fans with the announcement of his first solo album Blunderbuss, Jack White took to Saturday Night Live to make his first-ever solo appearance in support of the record. In addition to the usual performance of a lead single, White also debuted a brand new song from the record.
As last night’s show drew an extra amount of attention, due to host Lindsay Lohan’s “comeback” to the airwaves, any viewers not scared away by its grossly unfunny comedy were treated to two excellent performances by Jack White. First, White was accompanied by an all-female backing band, playing the mostly-acoustic single Love Interruption, exactly like its video. Watch it below:
However, a big surprise came with White’s second song, as he appeared onstage with an electric guitar, backed by an entirely different, all-male band. He debuted the track Sixteen Saltines, which sounds a hell of a lot more like what we’d expect from the White Stripes/Raconteurs frontman. Watch it below:
As Mr. White is set to begin his US tour on March 10, we wonder whether or not the two bands will be an actual part of the set, with one half of the show being acoustic, and the other half electric.
Blunderbuss drops on April 24, and it can be pre-ordered here.
