Watch Michel Gondry’s Steamy Music Video For The White Stripes’ “City Lights”

Written by on September 12, 2016 


Aside from creating one of the best sci-fi films of the 21st century so far, Michel Gondry is perhaps best known for his wildly inventive music videos, and one band that seems to bring the best out of him is The White Stripes. While they don’t technically have a new album on the way, Jack White Acoustic Recordings 1998-2016 was recently released, and one of the songs was the newly unearthed “City Lights,” written back during the Get Behind Me Satan Days.

As any great director friend should do, Gondry went ahead on his own and shot a music video for it, which features some playful, steamy action in the shower (although, perhaps not the kind you are thinking). Check out the video and album below, along with a message from Third Man Records and Gondry’s other White Stripes videos.

Third Man Records is pleased to share the genius surprise gift they received from their friend MICHEL GONDRY. On his own and without anyone’s knowledge, the legendary filmmaker shot a video for “City Lights,” which he sent them the other night. The video is Gondry’s fifth visual collaboration with The White Stripes. “City Lights” was written for The White Stripes’ GET BEHIND ME SATAN but then forgotten until White revisited the 2005 album for Third Man’s Record Store Day 2015 vinyl reissue and finished the recording in 2016. The track is the first new, worldwide commercially released song by The White Stripes since 2008.
