Two Jack Whites Are Better Than One In New “I’m Shakin’” Video
Modern bluesman and guitar hero Jack White has released the latest video from his latest solo album, Blunderbuss, for “I’m Shakin’,” a song first made famous by 1950’s R&B singer Little Willie John. The clip, which was directed by Dori Oskowitz, features both of White’s (mostly) gender-specific touring bands (AKA the Buzzards and the Peacocks) facing off in a large warehouse space.
The video coincides with the release of a 7-inch vinyl single for “I’m Shakin’” that will feature an exclusive non-LP B-side, “Blues on Two Trees.” The single will be available for pre-order starting October 16 at his artist and Third Man label websites for an October 30 release date.
White is so fired up for the fourth single from Blunderbuss that “I’m Shakin’” even comes with a (very cool) free limited edition commemorative poster, which will be distributed at random locations around the world. Fans need to follow Third Man Records on Twitter for times and locations (posters have already been distributed in New York City at Other Music and in Leeds, England, at Jumbo Records).
Jack White’s upcoming concert schedule remains packed, with appearances scheduled for this year’s Bridge School Benefit Concert with Neil Young, Guns N’ Roses, Foster The People and more in Mountain View, CA (October 20-21), and the Voodoo Music & Arts Experience in New Orleans (October 28).
