Jack White honors Paul McCartney with the Beatles’ ‘Mother Nature’s Son’ at the White House

​After the jump, you will find a video of Jack White playing the acoustic White Album cut, “Mother Nature’s Son.” It’s from the Library of Congress Gershwin Prize tribute to Paul McCartney last month (which featured appearances by Elvis Costello, Stevie Wonder, and and Emmylou Harris as well), and it hasn’t seen the light of day until now. We could say that we’re posting it in honor of Paul’s appearance at the Sprint Center this weekend, which is sort of true — after all, White performed the song sitting mere feet away from both the President and one of pop and rock’s most honored heirs. But: that’s not really why we’re putting it up here. We’re posting it because Jack White kicks ass ten different ways from here ’til Tuesday, and we love him.

Watch after the jump.
