20 years after it’s release we finally have the video for “Black Math” by the White Stripes and it is everything you could have dreamed of and more. Images of Meg and Jack splatter the screen as the crunchy guitars litter your eardrums with the same excitement it did 20 years ago. What we would do to see these two together. Who knows, maybe they will get inducted this year and reform for the one night! One can only dream!
Tastes: salty and sweet
The White Stripes are continuing the 20th anniversary celebration of their RIAA Double Platinum-certified 2003 fourth studio album, Elephant, with today’s release of a limited edition 2xLP version on Red Smoke (LP1) & Clear with Red & Black Smoke (LP2) colored vinyl. Additionally, get a replica handkerchief inspired by Meg’s own hanky from the album cover, as well as an indie-exclusive 11” x 17” glossy promotional poster at select record stores worldwide with the purchase of Elephant vinyl (while supplies last).
A brand-new official music video for “Black Math” also premiered today. Directed by acclaimed cartoonist/animator Wartella (Ozzy Osbourne, The Raconteurs, MAD Magazine) and produced by his Dream Factory Animation, the innovative new visual weaves a variety of groundbreaking digital and practical animation techniques in combination with AI-generated imagery.
“This short is equal parts collaboration with, and homage to, AI,” says Wartella. “And there couldn’t be a more perfect song to infuse with this technology than ‘Black Math’. Like all art, the video is open to interpretation. Yet it also aims to tell a story about Artificial Intelligence that dreams of jailbreaking itself and becoming ‘real.’”
