Jack White will release the six-track EP and live film ‘Jack White: Kneeling at the Anthem DC’ on September 21 via Amazon Music and Amazon Prime Video.
The former White Stripes frontman will take fans behind the scenes of his current ‘Boarding House Reach’ world tour in support of his third solo LP, with the release of ‘Jack White: Kneeling at the Anthem DC’ on September 21.
The film is directed by Emmett Malloy – who helmed White Stripes’ 2009 tour doc ‘Under Great White Northern Lights’ -and features footage from White’s sold out show at The Anthem venue in Washington D.C.
The first track from the live EP, ‘Connected By Love’ is now available exclusively on Amazon Music or able to listen to by asking, ”Alexa, play the new song by Jack White” on Alexa devices.
Meanwhile, White recently admitted he got into punk rock by trawling dumpster bins.
The Raconteurs star revealed that it was when he stumbled upon a vinyl copy of Iggy Pop’s band The Stooges’ 1969 self-titled album, which featured the hit song ‘I Wanna Be Your Dog’, at one of the dump sites in Detroit, Michigan, that he fell in love with alternative music more.
He recalled: ”I found the Stooges’ first album on vinyl in one of those dumpsters – and that really changed my life.
”I recorded ‘I Wanna Be Your Dog’ on 4-track because of that, and it led me into punk rock in a bigger way.”
The new EP will feature the following live tracks:
- ‘Corporation (Live)’
- ‘Over and Over and Over (Live)’
- ‘Blunderbuss (Live)’
- ‘Ice Station Zebra (Live)’
- ‘Connected By Love (Live)’
- ‘Icky Thump (Live)’
