Watch Jack White Perform Two <i>Boarding House Reach</i> Standouts on <i>SNL</i>

Jack White made his third appearance on Saturday Night Live over the weekend, performing two standout tracks from his recently released solo album “Boarding House Reach” and even making a cameo in a sketch.

White brought two songs from his latest to life on the Studio 8H stage, “Over and Over and Over” and “Connected by Love” White’s the performance was a true team effort, as he’s joined by four back-up singers (one of whom plays a mean tambourine), two keyboard players, his longtime bassist and a kickass drummer. The band’s take on “Over and Over and Over” is a rollicking rave-up that stops and starts on a dime, while their rendition of “Connected by Love” develops gradually, building to dueling organ and guitar solos that shred the song into tatters before Jack White and co. bring it all back home.

The former White Stripe and his band kick off their tour in support of Boarding House Reach this coming week, in White’s hometown of Detroit. White recently described their sound as “very heavy,” adding, “I’ve never been in a band this loud before.” If that (and their SNL set) sounds like your cup of tea, you can find their full tour might be coming near you.
We weren’t the only ones who enjoyed White’s performances Annie Clark (aka St. Vincent got a kick out of his “Connected by Love” track with White playing a guitar designed by Vincent-and-ernie-ball announced in-2017-line-of Annie Clark’s signature Ernie Ball line guitars.

As White briefly discussed with Jimmy Fallon during a recent Tonight Show interview, the musician also popped up in a sketch: the cut-for-time “Wedding Toast,” in which White played a wedding guitarist who happens to be sleeping with John Mulaney’s wife. Though White does little more than play guitar (i.e., himself) in the sketch, it’s fun to see him flex his comedic muscles, however gently—he’s rarely done so since his scene-stealing turn as in 2007’s Walk Hard.

“Connected By Love” from Jack White’s new album Boarding House Reach available now.
