Now, while TMR's Vault packages are of course only available to Vault members (sign up here if you're ready to commit to the life of a Third Man diehard), that isn't where the info about forthcoming D.W. material stops. Check it:
Is there more to come from this? Yes there is. The Dead Weather's plan is to record and release two-song sets until 2015 at which time they will release a full album that contains these singles plus many more album-only tracks. It's a unique long-term plan for new music from this incendiary group. The songs WILL be released digitally, but not until Vault packages have been dispatched to subscribers. The goal is that physical copies are out there first.
So, what will the product of this unique long-term plan actually sound like? Stream a 30-second clip of "Open Up (That's Enough)" below. While 30 seconds is of course hardly enough to inspire a proper appraisal, I can say that the tune features the sort of blown-out, cacophonous, staccato delivery and half-hollered vocals that the first two Dead Weather LPs were known for. I've always thought of this band as sort of an exercise in style for a group of rock stars who want to stretch their chops and play around — if you ask me, each member's other band(s) deliver more in the actual substance department. But what are you asking me for? Listen below, and while you're at it, watch The Raconteurs' live DVD promo trailer after the jump.
