The Dead Weather have dropped a live performance video for “I Feel Love (Every Million Miles),” the opening track and first single off the band’s upcoming LP Dodge and Burn. In the black-and-white video, Alison Mosshart, Jack White and company perform their new track at Third Man Records surrounded by draped statues that come alive during the raucous performance.
The second “I Feel Love” clip is the first in a series of live performance and “instrument technique discussion” videos that Dead Weather will release in the lead up to Dodge and Burn. For the latter, the band’s rep tells Rolling Stone that the group will release videos “in which each musician will go through how they play a certain song on the record.”
In addition to being the title of Dead Weather’s first album in five years, “dodge and burn” are techniques usually associated with photography, and the “I Feel Love (Every Million Miles)” video appears to have a layer of that effect coated over the performance to give it a unique, almost-oversaturated look.
The “I Feel Love (Every Million Miles)” live performance video comes two months after the Dead Weather posted the single’s music video as a Tidal exclusive; Jack White is a co-owner of Jay Z’s streaming service. However, that video, which features Mosshart facing off against a windstorm, is available to view now on Vevo.
