You can hear 'Machine Gun Silhouette', the B-side to Jack White's debut solo single 'Love Interruption', by scrolling down to the bottom of the page and clicking.

The ex-White Stripes man released the track as part of the package for his debut single yesterday (February 7), ahead of the release of his debut solo album 'Blunderbuss' on April 23. The album has produced by White at his own Third Man Studio in Nashville.

Speaking about 'Blunderbuss', White commented that it was "an album I couldn't have released until now".

He continued:

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.


Jack White is set to make his first solo appearance in the UK at BBC Radio 1's Hackney Weekend event: a huge outdoor festival set to take place next summer to celebrate the 2012 Olympic Games.

The event will take place on London's Hackney Marshes on June 23–24 and will hold up to 100,000 people. Lana Del Rey, Plan B and Florence And The Machine are also set to perform at the event.
