Jack White Releasing Amazon Original EP And Documentary

  • 12 September 2018

Jack White is releasing a six-song Amazon Original live EP and documentary.

The former White Stripes star will take fans behind the scenes of his current 'Boarding House Reach' world tour in support of his third solo LP, with the release of 'Jack White: Kneeling at the Anthem DC' on September 21, exclusively on Amazon Music and Amazon Prime Video.

The film is directed by Emmett Malloy - who helmed White Stripes' 2009 tour doc 'Under Great White Northern Lights' -and features footage from the 'Seven Nation Army' hitmaker's sold out show at The Anthem venue in Washington D.C.

The first track from the live EP, 'Connected By Love' is now available exclusively on Amazon Music or able to listen to by asking, ''Alexa, play the new song by Jack White'' on Alexa devices.

Meanwhile, Jack recently admitted he got into punk rock by trawling dumpster bins.

The Raconteurs star revealed that it was when he stumbled upon a vinyl copy of Iggy Pop's band The Stooges' 1969 self-titled album, which featured the hit song 'I Wanna Be Your Dog', at one of the dump sites in Detroit, Michigan, that he fell in love with alternative music more.

He recalled: ''I found the Stooges' first album on vinyl in one of those dumpsters - and that really changed my life.

''I recorded 'I Wanna Be Your Dog' on 4-track because of that, and it led me into punk rock in a bigger way.''

Jack also admitted he thinks hip-hop stars have more of a ''dangerous edge'' than rock stars nowadays.

He said: ''Rappers have the dangerous edge of music now - what I would consider the closest thing to that stuff you might not want your parents to know you're listening to.''
