Jack White's thoroughly unsettling "Sixteen Saltines" video can be viewed right now at www.jackwhiteIII.com
Directed by AG Rojas, "Sixteen Saltines" is a 180 degree turn from the previous "Love Interruption" video, eschewing that clip's seductive palette for a magnification of the last frontier of urban wasteland and its dispossessed youth left to indulge any impulse. "Sixteen Saltines" seems to take place in a waking nightmare world outside of time or any kind of rule, a place you'd never want to live--but one you can't stop visiting.
"Sixteen Saltines" is currently available via iTunes or as a 7" vinyl single available at your local purveyor of fine music or jackwhiteIII.com. It's the second single from Jack White's forthcoming debut album Blunderbuss which will be released on 23rd April 2012 on Third Man Records / XL Recordings.
Meanwhile, Jack White is set to return to the UK in June for a series of recently announced live shows. Jack will headline London's historic Brixton Academy and Hammersmith Apollo venues on 21st and 22nd June respectively before performing at the Radio 1 Hackney Weekend on 23rd June. These shows are part of a busy touring schedule for Jack, which will see him performing at major cities across the US and Europe.
