Live Gig Video: The Dead Weather perform ‘I Feel Love (Every Million Miles)’ at Third Man Records

By on Thursday, 10th September 2015 at 4:00 pm

In case you missed the memo, The Dead Weather are back. Jack White, Alison Mossheart and co. have returned to lay more down and dirty hard rock tracks on you, including this one called ‘I Feel Love (Every Million Miles)’, performed and filmed at White’s own Third Man Records studio. I can’t help but feel like you’ve stepped back in time to watch early ’70s Led Zeppelin, as Mossheart is channeling young Robert Plant on the song and the guitar lines sounding similarly taken from Jimmy Page.

The Dead Weather’s new album ‘Dodge and Burn’ is expected on the 25th of September on Third Man Records. For our admittedly old coverage on the band back when they were still active in 2010 and earlier, go here.
