If you and I have had any discussion about the music of the previous decade, I’ve probably made it painfully aware that I’m a huge fan of Jack White. From The White Stripes to The Raconteurs and The Dead Weather, his production work with Loretta Lynn and Wanda Jackson, the innovative things that he’s doing with Third Man Records, and hell, even off the wall TV appearances like this recent episode of American Pickers – I’m consistently impressed with White’s output (let’s just slide that collaboration with the Insane Clown Posse under the rug, shall we?).
The only thing more impressive than White’s output is his work ethic. It seems that every year he’s involved with multiple music projects of alarmingly consistent quality (again, that ICP collaboration never happened). As the first month of 2012 winds down, we already have a release date for White’s next project, a solo LP to be released on April 24th.
Though he has released a number of solo tracks over the years, this is White’s first full length outing as a solo artist. We can only speculate what kind of musical dynamic White has without his ever-growing list of collaborators, but this week we do get a taste of the upcoming Blunderbuss in “Love Interruption.”
The mellow acoustic number is reminiscent of the White Stripes’ more subdued material, though the manipulated harmony vocal (presumably White’s voice altered in pitch) adds a characteristically haunting element to the track. We’ll have to wait until April 24 to find out if “Love Interruption” is indicative of the overall sound on Blunderbuss. But in the meantime, we have the single to allay our anxiety.
You can pre-order the 7″ of “Love Interruption” now at Third Man Records, and the promise of a non-album b-side may just be enough to convince your old pal Gonzo to put in an order.
