The Dead Weather to Premiere New Song on Cinemax

Consider it a collaboration on top of a collaboration: Director Jonathan Glazer, responsible for major feature films like Sexy Beast and Birth as well as award-winning Radiohead music videos, has joined forces with supergroup The Dead Weather to direct the band's newest short. The Dead Weather already boasts an all-star lineup, including Dean Fertita (Queens of the Stone Age), Jack White (The White Stripes/The Raconteurs), Jack Lawrence (The Greenhornes/The Raconteurs) and Alison Mosshart (The Kills).

The Dead Weather will release their debut album, Horehound, on July 14, but fans can catch a sneak peek of their song "Treat Me Like Your Mother" and the Glazer-directed short film, uncensored, on Cinemax, July 11 at 9:55 p.m. The film's promo image is pictured above.

After the premiere, the film will air on all Cinemax channels for the next five weeks, a marked change for the network. This is only the second time Cinemax has debuted a music short in its history.

The Dead Weather will also perform on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon on July 17.
