Jack White Releases Three Videos in One for ‘Black Bat Licorice’
Unique visual experience features trippy animation, head-banging and White playing air-violin
Potato chips, sliced-off tongues, head-banging: It’s all included in the interactive, three-in-one music video for Jack White’s latest single, “That Black Bat Licorice.” The collaborative clip, which premiered Wednesday at White’s official website, allows users to navigate three thematically and visually unique worlds.
Last week, White and label Third Man Records announced a 7″ single version of “That Black Bat Licorice,” a cut from the rocker’s Grammy-winning second studio album, 2014’sÂ Lazaretto. The release ”“Â currently available for pre-orderÂ from Third ManÂ ”“Â features the non-LP B-side (and Harry Connick Jr. cover) “Blue Right, Red Light (Someone’s There”).
White recently delivered a scorching version of the violin-driven “That Black Bat Licorice” on The Tonight Show, closing out Jimmy Fallon’s recent run of Los Angeles tapings. Earlier this month, the rock iconÂ won Best Rock Performance for “Lazaretto” at the 57th Annual Grammy Awards. The track was also nominated for Best Rock Song, and the LP secured a nod for Best Alternative Music Album.
