Jack White unveils never-before-seen acoustic video

Jack White – who earlier this week received three nominations for the upcoming 59th Annual GRAMMY® Awards, bringing his career nominations total to 35 – has unveiled a new performance video featuring a never-before-seen live take of “The Rose With The Broken Neck,” filmed at Jackson, WY’s Pink Garter Theatre on April 23rd, 2015 during White’s unprecedented acoustic tour. Filmed, edited and directed by Brad Holland and produced by Jack White, the starkly powerful clip also sees White elaborating on the song’s history and his own process as writer and collaborator. The original version of “The Rose With The Broken Neck” – featuring lyrics by White and music composed by Danger Mouse and Daniele Luppi – is found on Danger Mouse and Daniele Luppi’s acclaimed 2011 release, ROME. Watch the video HERE.
The live acoustic rendition of “The Rose With The Broken Neck” follows  the release earlier this year of White’s essential songwriting collection, JACK WHITE ACOUSTIC RECORDINGS: 1998-2016. The video was heralded by a series of clues on the official @thirdmanrecords Twitter inviting fans to participate in the just-concluded Tin Man poster scavenger hunt, with one Grand Prize Winner receiving an exclusive trip to a special event at Third Man Records Cass Corridor (Detroit) and six Runner-Up Winners each receiving a Jack White-signed Acoustic Recordings vinyl LP.
JACK WHITE ACOUSTIC RECORDINGS: 1998-2016 (Third Man Records/Columbia) collects 26 acoustic-based songs from throughout White’s wide-ranging musical career, spanning album tracks, B-sides, remixes, alternate versions, and previously unreleased material from The White Stripes, The Raconteurs, and his solo career. Tuesday’s announcement of nominations for the 59th Annual GRAMMY® Awards saw The White Stripes’ previously unreleased “City Lights” – featured on JACK WHITE ACOUSTIC RECORDINGS: 1998-2016 – named in the “Best American Roots Song” category.
White also received nominations in the “Album of the Year” category for his production, writing, and featured role on Beyoncé’s LEMONADE (Parkwood Entertainment/Columbia), while the album’s “Don’t Hurt Yourself (Feat. Jack White)” also earned a “Best Rock Performance” nomination.
