After teasing it, Jack White has announced his new album which is indeed titled Boarding House Reach and will be released via Third Man/Columbia. (It's his first since 2014's Lazaretto.) While he hasn't announced the release date, he has shared two songs from the album -- "Connected by Love," which is the official first single, and "Respect Commander." Both songs are out now as a 7" single. You can check those out, along with the video for "Connected by Love," below.
