Jack White

Let's be honest, some may claim The White Stripes were basically the Jack White show in disguise (despite shared song credits). With the band in the rearview, Jack White has made it official. He'll release a solo LP via Third Man Records/Columbia on April 24.

Produced by White and recorded at his own Third Man Studio in Nashville, Blunderbuss has been described by White as "an album I couldn't have released until now. 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. 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."
But first comes a preview in the form of a 7" from the Raconteurs/Dead Weather member which is on sale digitally TONIGHT (1/30) at midnight EST (technically 1/31 unless you're out west). The actual record is out on 2/7. The song, "Love Interruption" 7" (which will be accompanied by a non-LP B-Side of "Machine Gun Silhouette"), can also be streamed NOW, below...

Yes!

"recorded at his own Third Man Studio"
named after the movie, which is about a huckster, a flim flam artist, a charlatan, a confidence man, a swindler.

Yup, that sounds about right.

I disrupted the playback of that song.

Songwriting genius. Haters gonna hate.

Posted by Seventh Son | January 30, 2012 2:19 PM

Everything he has done is great, perhaps with the exclusion of Dead Weather, but there is certainly no need to hate. I suppose you hip New Yorkers need more keyboards and less guitar...

I wonder where he placed the mounted Elephant's head that he bought from the American Pickers.

The same people bashing this song will be complaining about how hard it was to get tickets to his NYC shows in April.

Posted by Anonymous | January 30, 2012 3:13 PM

You mean this guy took a break from being a circus ringmaster to actually make music?

To be fair, the egomaniacal attitude people on here are lambasting him for is only there because of the horde of sycophants and yes-men he's surrounded himself with over the years. He's only human, you'd have turned out the same way.

The sound of this song indicates to me that his next phase will be what we always expected him to wind up being: public radio alt country guy.

It will never be as good as Lafayette Blues. It's just how it is.

Get me out into the nighttime
Four walls won't hold me tonight
If this town is just an apple
Then let me take a bite

He's beginning to look like a 50 old woman. He's a little curvy.

Posted by Anonymous | January 30, 2012 4:17 PM

Posted by Anonymous | January 30, 2012 4:27 PM

thanks 4:15, i was able to "steam" it with firefox lol

Posted by Anonymous | January 30, 2012 4:34 PM

2:19 PM Its just that he's not so original, has a novelty act, and sings the blues like he bought it at a clothing store so no "hate" really.

I'll take Flat Duo Jets instead.

Posted by Anonymous | January 30, 2012 4:52 PM

I'm into it. Hoping this means he'll also being touring and playing some White Stripes song live with a proper band. Would be awesome.

I'm pretty sure Jack White never had a 10 year old boys cock in his mouth so I don't see how he looks like Michael Jackson

Posted by Anonymous | January 30, 2012 10:28 PM

^not so sure about that. Dude does have an MJ vibe. Creepy.
