Jack White has announced that he will release his first solo album, "Blunderbuss," on April 24th.
"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," the White Stripes lead man said in a statement.
To kick things off right, the Nashville-based songwriter released the debut track "Love Interruption" - streaming now on his newly launched website. Joined by raspy, raw female vocals, the new track is a stripped-down, laid back, bluesy song - a refreshing change from White's harder rock trademark.
"Love Interruption" will be up for sale digitally starting tonight, and will also be pressed onto a vinyl single for release on February 7th with exclusively B-side "Machine Gun Silhouette." Both songs were recorded this winter.
The single and the album are being released through White's own Third Man Records label, in conjunction with Columbia.
Looking forward to hearing more from this album, which was apparently produced by White out of his Third Man Studio. Listen to "Love Interruption" below!
