Jack White Debuts “Sixteen Saltines” As New Single, Announces More Solo Shows

It’s been more than 2 weeks since Jack White played Saturday Night Live. I didn’t see it when it was on cause I was at the Bass Drum of Death show, but I did manage to see the clips online. I wasn’t blown away cause SNL has pretty shitty soundboard, but it was cool to see what was to come. According to some of my friends who have seen him live, he’s killing it. He’s cheating it a bit by playing songs from the White Stripes and the Dead Weather on tour, plus the whole two bands thing is kind of pointless, but oh well. It’s not the worst he’s done. As the release date for his solo record nears, things are looking more and more official. He just released a new single, “Sixteen Saltines.”

Sixteen Saltines – Jack White

It’s not a bad track, but I can’t help but think it’s just a rehash of the White Stripes “Girl, You Have No Faith In Medicine” from Elephant.

I dig “Love Interruption” a lot better, but I’m not fretting about it. Coinciding with this, White has announced even more tour dates. He’s playing two nights at the Ryman, but tickets are $45 a pop. C’mon Jack. How much money do you need? Still, it’d be really interesting to see some of the White Stripes songs interpreted with a full live band. If anyone wants to buy me a ticket, I’d gladly take it. You can see full tour dates below along with the usual videos below. Check it.
