Jack White has had a number of popular music projects throughout his career, and the native of Detroit just announced that he will be releasing another solo album in just a few short months. His second solo album is set to be released in June.
Following his first solo release “Blunderbuss,” which was released in 2012, Jack White revealed that he would be releasing his next album soon, and it is called “Lazaretto.” He announced the album on his website, which also features details about how to get a special package with a vinyl copy, and much more along with it when signing up for the vault package.
His first attempt at a solo record made it to No.1 for the first time in his career, and he has worked with several bands previously. Prior to venturing out on his own, he had recorded multiple albums with various groups such as The White Stripes, The Raconteurs, and The Dead Weather.
His last album received nominations at the Grammy Awards in both 2013 and 2014, an album that featured both an all-female, and an all-male band, which appear separately on different songs. He rotates which band he plays with at various shows as well.
“Blunderbuss” contained hit singles such as “Love Interruption,” “Freedom At 21,” and “I’m Shakin’,” which was most recently nominated for the Grammy for Best Rock Performance. White’s song “Love Is Blindness” was also featured in The Great Gatsby in 2013.
Jack White’s next album, “Lazaretto” will be released by Columbia via Third Man Records, the label that was started by White, and is based out of Nashville, Tennessee, where he now resides. The title track of the album, which is set to be its first single, will be released later this month.
In the meantime, he has given fans a first listen with an instrumental track called “High Ball Stepper,” which had its music video released on Youtube yesterday. The video was directed by longtime Jack White collaborator Ben Swank, and features plenty of a good helping of his guitar skills that fans love.
Jack White is set to be one of the headliner’s of the 2014 Bonnaroo lineup, and will also appear at the Governor’s Ball Music Festival in New York City. His second solo album, “Lazaretto,” will hit stores on June 10, 2014.
