Live In Toronto Canada" (2001):"Falling Out redirects here. For the album by Peter Bjorn and John, see Falling Out (album)""White Pepper" was Ween's seventh full-length album, and the last album they would release on Elektra Records. It was released on May 2, 2000.
"White Pepper" is by far Ween's most polished album, and probably the group's most accessible. Songs like "Even If You Don't" feature powerful, radio-friendly production and musicianship. Ween's bizarre sense of humour is still intact (such as on the
Steely Dan satire"Pandy Fackler") and their hard rock roots still show as seen on "Stroker Ace" and "The Grobe", but for the most part, Ween play the album much more subdued than usual, using pop (especially Beatles-based pop) and AM radiostaples for its inspiration. Its title is said to be a tip of the hat to two Beatles albums, "Sgt. Peppers" and "The White Album."
The band helped promote the album by performing "Exactly Where I'm At" on the
Late Show with David Letterman. The track "Even If You Don't" was made into a music video and directed by Trey Parkerand Matt Stoneof South Parkfame. According to Dean Ween(Mickey Melchiondo), he and Gene Ween(Aaron Freeman) are good friends of Parker and Stone, and Melchiondo has even referred to them (Parker and Stone) as kindred spirits.Fact|date=August 2008
