Stream: Jack White – “Sixteen Saltines”

March 13, 2012

If this blistering cut, the first single, and recent live setlists are any indication, Jack White’s solo debut will be an eclectic trip through the styles he explored in previous projects. Come to think of it, there are hints of a few of White’s other bands in today’s preview, “Sixteen Saltines,” alone: the guitar/drum-driven main riff recalls the White Stripes while the chorus’ harmony vocals bring the Raconteurs to mind and an effects pedal-filtered version of the hook wouldn’t be out of place on one of the Dead Weather’s analog synths. Either way, we’re over a month away from when Blunderbuss arrives in full and things are shaping up nicely. Check out the studio version of the tune he debuted on SNL below:
