Jack White dropped by "Saturday Night Live" this weekend to play some new songs you'll soon be able to hear on his upcoming solo debut Blunderbuss, which will be out on April 23 via his label Third Man in association with Columbia Records.
This will be the first record under the White Stripes/Dead Weather/Raconteurs man's own name (well, stage name anyway). Based on the SNL performances, Buss will show off the two main sides of the ever-restless White's personality. Which is to say, the Nashville side and the Detroit side.
For the Grand Ole Opry-ready ballad "Love Interruption," White was dressed in one of his snazziest cowboy suits and backed by a dressed to the nines all-lady band, including a duet partner and violin player. Classy, until it's wonderfully not.
For "Sixteen Saltines," White was dressed and sounding more like his bar-fight-ready White/Weather raucous best. Pay special attention to the nattily dressed but barely able to sit still drummer. Let's hope White brings that guy on tour.
Check them both out below.
