Stream The Dead Weather's Upcoming Release, Horehound, Now

The Dead Weather
Following on the successful heels of The White Stripes and The Raconteurs, Jack White has now joined forces with Alison Mosshart (The Kills), Jack Lawrence (The Raconteurs) and Dean Fertita (Queens of the Stone Age) to form a rock band called The Dead Weather. The band's highly anticipated debut album, Horehound, is available to listen to in full and for free, exclusively on iLike for the next 24 hours at:

In advance of Horehound's July 14 release, fans can experience the album for the first time today, exclusively on iLike. Horehound was produced by Jack White on his Third Man Records imprint and was the first record to ever be recorded at his new Nashville-based studio.

"I feel it, you feel it – we're all struggling with the trouble that this industry is in right now," said Jack White. "And it's not about sales; it's about beauty and romance and a relationship to art that's turning invisible, and it's affecting people's perception of music. It's affecting whether they think of it as a viable art, because it's so disposable. It's not about being modern or retro or a Luddite or being hopeful or pessimistic about the future; it's about clinging on to what makes sense of our lives, and what gives our lives value, and what gives us a commonality and a feeling of belonging."

And a reminder: don't miss the Cinemax debut of their short film for latest single, "Treat Me Like Your Mother" directed by Jonathan Glazer on July 11 at 9:55 p.m. on the premium cable channel. The trailer below will give fans a glimpse of what's to come:
