Daily Dose Pick: Under Great White Northern Lights


Documenting Jack and Meg White’s ambitious 2007 Canadian tour, Under Great White Northern Lights is both a compelling film and the White Stripes’ first official live album.

The duo took director Emmett Malloy on the road for the trip, which included stops in every single province in Canada. Along the way, the pair played a series of surprise shows, met with tribal elders, dressed in Scottish regalia, and celebrated its 10th anniversary as a band. The film captures all the high and lows of the trek, while the album features 16 tracks recorded live on the tour.
