We’ve seen Jack White do a lot of things. First came the White Stripes, of course, and then the seemingly endless list of side projects and collaborations, some (the Raconteurs, Loretta Lynn, Wanda Jackson, the Dead Weather, John C. Reilly) better than others (okay, mostly just Insane Clown Posse). We’ve even seen the man take home an elephant head!
This spring, though, we’ll get see him do something new: go solo.
White announced today that he’ll be releasing his solo debut Blunderbuss on April 24 via Third Man Records, the label-record-store-recording-studio he runs out of Nashville.
“I’ve put off making records under my own name for a long time, but these songs feel like they could only be presented under my name,” White says of the new album. “These songs were written from scratch, had nothing to do with anyone or anything else but my own expression, my own colors on my own canvas.”
And if his album’s very, very good lead single is any indication, Blunderbuss will be worth the wait. Check out the short, strummy “Love Interruption” below:
