Jack White's Newest Project - The Dead Weather

Looks like this is today's hottest music news: Jack White has begun fronting yet another band, this time under the moniker The Dead Weather. While it should be noted that this isn't a White side-project, it's actually more of a quartet supergroup - including vocalist Alison Mosshart of The Kills; guitarist Dean Fertita of Queens of the Stone Age; and bass player Jack Lawrence, of the familiar Raconteurs. It's probably going to be a while before we see a full-length release, but if you want a taste of what's to come, watch these videos:
