It’s something Jack White should have done years ago, but he’s finally got around to it.
Everybody’s favourite magpie musician has been a very busy man – previous band projects (The White Stripes, The Raconteurs, The Dead Weather), producing (everyone from Whirlwind Heat to John C Reilly), messing around with collaborators (from Beck toInsane Clown Posse) and releasing live recordings (White Denim, Jacuzzi Boys, Jeff The Brotherhood) through his label Third Man Records – and is now ready to go solo.
The new album, Blunderbuss, will be out in April, and this is the first taste of that material. Warm, stripped back, but distinctly White‘s style. You know what you’re getting with this one. I hope this will be a nice little album, possibly taking note of his friend Beck‘s more acoustic country stuff, but with strong blues and folk elements. We’ll have to wait and see about the full album, but for now, enjoy this…
Hear Jack’s debut solo single, Love Interruption, below. Blunderbuss is due April 23rd on Third Man Records/XL Recordings.
