Earlier this summer The Dead Weather—Jack White, Dean Fertita (Queens of the Stone Age), Alison Mosshart (The Kills), and Jack Lawrence—announced that they would finally be putting out their first album since 2010 this fall. Last week the rock ‘n’ roll supergroup shared “I Feel Love (Every Million Miles)”–the first single from their upcoming album Dodge and Burn. So soon after, they’ve already shared their second single “Cop and Go,” which may be even better than the first.

The band’s first single was very gritty and unpolished, but that’s what made it great. This new single “Cop and Go” feels just as gritty but there’s more structure to the entirety of it—the lyrics, the instrumentation—that makes this single feel instantly stronger. “Cop and Go” is filled with energy that can barely be squeezed into tiny earphones. It deserves to be blasted at full volume until it’s felt. With these two first singles, there’s no doubt that The Dead Weather’s new album Dodge and Burn—due out September 25th via Third Man Records—will be a brilliant one.

The Dead Weather will celebrate Dodge and Burn with a hugely anticipated visit to CBS’ Late Show with Stephen Colbert. The appearance – which marks the band’s first official live performance in five years – airs Monday, September 14 at 11:35/10:35c (check local listings).

The band has also just unveiled an electrifying new live performance video for “I Feel Love (Every Million Miles),” directed by Jack White and edited by Brad Holland and Jack. 
An additional series of live performance and technique and instrument-based videos will be rolled out in the coming weeks. The first episode of the technique videos, released yesterday, features Jack White discussing and demonstrating his drumming. The clip – which comes paired with a powerhouse live rendition of The Dead Weather’s now-classic debut single, “Hang You From The Heavens” – is available now on Modern Drummer.

Meanwhile, the official “I Feel Love (Every Million Miles)” companion video – directed by award-winning duo Ian & Cooper
