The Dead Weather

Thought you'd already seen the music video for "I Feel Love (Every Million Miles)"? Well, here's another one. The Dead Weather just released a live performance video of the single off their upcoming album, Dodge and Burn. It's the first in a series of live performance and instrument technique videos to be released in the coming weeks. In stark contrast to the dramatic video released in August, the minimalistic new performance video reveals a fresh—albeit not unexpected—aesthetic in accordance with the promo material for the new album, crafted by the kitsch-oriented folks at Third Man Records (namely Jack White).

The heavily filtered black and white video shows the supergroup—comprised of White, The Kills' Alison Mosshart, Queens of the Stone Age's Dean Fertitia and "Little" Jack Lawrence of The Greenhornes—rocking out at Third Man on a set littered with odds and ends. The only thing weirder than the group of faceless bodysuit-clad figures scattered throughout the set is the one intermittently mirroring singer Mosshart at the opposite mic, complete with a shock of hair obscuring her (its?) face. Perhaps it's a portent of a surprise guest to be featured on the new album? Speculation and oddities aside, the new video is just the latest sign of another killer album from the group. White's adeptness on the drum kit and Mosshart's violent rocking only add fuel to the fire that is the chemistry of The Dead Weather.

The scorching new track marks the impending arrival of The Dead Weather's first full-length release in five years, an album they've been teasing since last year. You can pre-order the album now, or wait until our review of the album comes out later this month to decide.
