Consequence of Sound reports today that, unsurprisingly—but still somewhat comforting—that Jack White will once again be siding with Team Coco, this time as the premiere musical guest on the first episode of Conan O’Brien’s new TBS late night show, Conan.

Jack White is staying a busy man with the latest activity involving him talking one his bands, The Dead Weather, up through a release from his record label and store, Third Man Records. The band has just announced that they will be releasing “Blue Blood Blues” in three cool formats with the coolest version being a “Triple Decker Record.”
Designed by Mr. Jack White, himself, the extremely limited 300 copies of the 7″ are only available if you buy the 12″. Why? Because you have to crack the 12″ open in order to be able to listen to the new single. As White says, “It’s just one of the many mind games” they like to play at Third Man Records.

Last month, we gave you a little snippet of how it all went down at the White House as Paul McCartney was honored with the Gershwin Prize for Popular Song. We saw the joyous event that got President Obama, his wife, Jack White, Dave Grohl, Stevie Wonder and more up on their feet as they all sung along to the classic tune, “Hey Jude.”
Now, we’ve got another clip for you courtesy of PBS (via our buddies over at TwentyFourBit) which captures Jack White‘s performance of “Mother Nature’s Son.” How did his Beatles cover go in front of a Beatle? Watch his rendition after the jump!

When rumors of Jack White’s new band, The Dead Weather started circulating over a year ago, it was referred to as a ‘side-project’ of his. Referring to The Dead Weather as simply a side project of Jack White is like saying Them Crooked Vultures is a Dave Grohl side-project. The Dead Weather are their own beast, their own band. They’re the band that Jack White would have started if he hadn’t fallen into the musical niche that was The White Stripes. Alison Mosshart deserves just as much credit, if not more, for the whirlwind that is a Dead Weather show. Continue Reading

Having gone from hosting “the greatest franchise in television history” to moving to a TBS George Lopez pre-show to touring the United States in a big bus, Conan O’Brien’s odyssey of the past several months probably isn’t the career arc he had been shooting for when he first dreamt of making it in show business (although, in terms of his fans, the bearded Coco can probably do no wrong at this point); that said, O’Brien made another move backwards in time yesterday as he led a rockabilly band through a burning set of – you guessed it – rockabilly at a live concert at Jack White’s Third Man Records in Nashville, Tennessee, according to USA Today.

Citizens of Nashville, Tennessee are still suffering from a massive flood which occurred last weekend. As a major music city, there are also currently many musicians who are currently suffering from the damage the water has done to their instruments and and gear. It’s surprising to finally hear the media talking about this natural disaster since the nation has done everything we could for Haiti’s earthquake. However, people are finally giving what they can to those in need.

There’s good news for those who miss the originally Detroit-based rock duo, The White Stripes. After all his outings with The Raconteurs and The Dead Weather, Jack White has finally realized that he’s missed being in a band with his ex-wife, Meg White. Meg, whose anxiety caused the band to cancel a few shows back in 2007, is now said to be much better so the band can take off again.

Remember back in 2004, when Jay-Z collaborated with Linkin Park on Collision Course, a six-song EP mash-up of nu-metal, rap-rock and hip-hop? And if so, do you remember wondering what it would be like if Hova had collaborated with a rock music artist or group that didn’t suck? You’re about to get the answer…

It’s been chronicled time again just what a busy cat Jack White is; the guy is a music-makin’ machine. So it shouldn’t be any great surprise to hear that White made a little room on his to-do list recently to produce the solo debut of his wife, British supermodel Karen Elson. The production took place at, surprise, White’s Third Man Studios in Nashville.
Elson’s The Ghost Who Walks, which features 11 original tunes, each written by Elson, is due this summer from, surprise again, Third Man Records/XL Recordings..
Check below to watch the video for an acoustic version of “The Ghost Who Walks.”
