Jack White has been dabbling in music video directing a bit lately, but at least one forthcoming single from Third Man Records has been shot by an old pro. Floria Sigismondi, director of a slew of famous music videos (including the White Stripes’ “Blue Orchid,” where then-mustachioed Jack White met his future wife, Karen Elson), as well as the new Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning-starring rock biopic The Runaways, has shot a video for the Dead Weather’s new song “Die By The Drop,” Video Static reports.
Admittedly, I was expecting that the first video from White, Alison Mosshart, Dean Fertita, and “Little” Jack Lawrence would be for the song “Blue Blood Blues,” which White recently claimed would be the first single off their next LP (due out in April). Perhaps Sigismondi’s video will be to the second single or maybe they’ve changed the release plans, but one thing is for certain: Jack White has lots of surprises on the way.
No word yet on when we’ll get to hear/watch “Die By The Drop” (this photo from the set doesn’t provide much of a preview either), but in the meantime, check out Sigismondi’s previous work on the White Stripes’ “Blue Orchid” video here.
