Jack White has unveiled an exclusive first look at ‘Freedom at 21,’ the third video from his universally acclaimed debut record Blunderbuss (Third Man/Columbia). ‘Freedom at 21’ is directed by Hype WIlliams, whose trailblazing 1990s work with 2Pac, The Notorious B.I.G. and Missy Elliott defined the modern hip hop visual aesthetic–and whose more recent clips for Kanye West and Nicki Minaj expanded it that much further.
For his first interpretation of a Jack White song, Williams infuses his signature style with elements of classic American Grindhouse–the result being a clip that defies and smashes the conventions and boundaries of both the hip hop and rock video worlds.
Get a sneak peek of ‘Freedom at 21’ before the full length video premieres Monday, July 16th by watching the trailer here:
