Jack White Unleashes Scorching Video for ‘Lazaretto’

Posted:

Jack White GretschJack White’s highly-anticipated sophomore solo album Lazaretto is less than a week from its release date (June 10), but he’s already furnished fans three of the new songs.

And if the audio taste isn’t enough for White enthusiasts, the prolific songwriter recently dropped a visual in the form of a music video for the record’s title track.

The black-and-white clip for “Lazaretto” is perfect for the song’s machine-gun pacing, with shots of glass breaking, a bull stomping and a car burning some serious rubber. Throughout, White stabs at his guitar and snarls into the microphone, matching the aggressive scenes around him.
