Watch Jack White Perform Twangy ‘Lazaretto’ Song ‘Temporary Ground’

When not disparaging the Black Keys and Adele, and then backtracking from disparaging the Black Keys and Adele, Jack White is in the midst of his 2014 tour. The former White Stripe’s current run of live dates began last week in Tulsa, Oklahoma, with a set that included a Led Zeppelin cover as well as the live premieres of “Alone at Home” and “Temporary Ground,” both from his June 10 album Lazaretto. Over the weekend the Third Man Records boss also headlined Houston, Texas’ Free Press Festival, where a fan was able to get footage of the latter song, a woodsy, string-coated duet with the cutting lyric, “The old explorers had it easy / They discovered nothing new.” Watch that above, via Stereogum, and below watch his performance of Lazaretto advance track “High Ball Stepper.”
