Jack White Announces New Album

Posted 04 Apr 2014 in General News

The release of Jack White’s first solo album, Blunderbuss, received a mixed reception from the musical community. On one hand, many critics regarded the album as a money-making effort, in which White slapped together a dozen or so random songs throughout his career rather than crafting a dedicated and focused album. On the other hand, fans and some critics did really enjoy a lot of the music he put up for sale.

Jack White New Album

Regardless of your opinion on the matter, the fact that Jack White has announced a second solo album is still a newsworthy item. Titled Lazaretto, the album is slated to hit shelves on June 10th, and you can begin picking up presale copies at the end of the month (April 30th). In the meantime, White has put up the lead single from the album for streaming. The tune, which is called “High Ball Stepper”, seems to follow very much in the vein of White’s previous work. However, if the eclectic nature of his first album is any indication, don’t expect much of Lazaretto to sound anything like the single. Still, we’re excited for this new release, and we can’t wait to get our paws on a copy of Lazaretto.
