The White Stripes Icky Thump video provided by Warner Brothers + Jools Holland

Warner Brothers Records has generously added The White Stripes video for their latest single, "Icky Thump" onto YouTube. "Icky Thump" off of The White Stripes album of the same name is set for release worldwide on June 19, 2007.

Watch The White Stripes video for Icky Thump

Recently Jack White was upset with a DJ in Chicago for leaking the whole Icky Thump album live on air - which in turn allowed for bootleggers to tape the tracks and then upload them online. I don't blame him for being upset, but most likely this publicity will draw more attention to the album and in the long run will lead to more sales for The White Stripes. Believe it or not, there are still listeners out there who don't have the resources or the desire to download illegal mp3s and will actually go out and buy CDs or purchase albums online.

Last Friday (June 1st) I watched The White Stripes perform as a replacement for The Who on Later with Jools Holland. They played Icky Thump, Effect and Cause, My Doorbell featuring Jools Holland on piano (love that song) and a short interview with Jools Holland and a somewhat nervous Jack White talking about the concept of Icky Thump, the recording process for the album and producing records.

The White Stripes' upcoming tour dates include locations in Europe, the UK, USA and Canada.
