The White Stripes is without a doubt one of the most important rock bands of the new millennium. Precisely in the year 2000, Jack and Meg showed the world De Stijl, his second studio album, which contained one of his biggest hits: “Apple Blossom”.
Since then 20 years have passed and it seems that the duo’s work remains as relentless as it is currentWell, today the band just released an animated video for that song. And that’s not all because Third Man Records (White’s record company) preparing for December release an album of greatest hits of the group.
The animated video for “Apple Blossom”
It seems like yesterday when The White Stripes was one of the spoiled bands of the channels that showed videos. And it is that if we make a particular semblance, we can realize that Jack White and Meg White they liked the idea of using, from time to time, animations of all kinds as in “Fell In Love with a Girl” or even “Seven Nation Army”.
To that animated videography we can add a new effort with the clip that came out today for the song “Apple Blossom”, which rescues many characteristic visual elements of the band. The guitarist and the drummer chose throughout their career to make red, white and black their favorite colors; its characteristic hallmark and in We will see this visual again.
And it is that the video could not fit better with the lyrics of the song. The clip shows us the story of a desperate woman who tries to leave behind a stormy life, but even this escape has quite complicated passages for our protagonist.
Through the sequences, we observe that the girl is shipwrecked on a coast where Jack White himself, hidden in a lighthouse, rescues her. It is then that we realize that fate may have planned them to come together, well the mysterious woman seems to take Jack’s heart to give him color again -literally- and together they embark on a journey to a new life.
