The former White Stripes man releases his second solo album next week (June 9)
Jack White has shared the video for ‘Lazaretto’.
The song is the title track from his second solo album, following 2012’s ‘Blunderbuss’. The video was directed by Jonas & François. You can watch it at the top of the page now.
A special vinyl ‘Ultra’ version of ‘Lazaretto’ will also be available. The 180 gram release will feature two vinyl-only hidden tracks, which will be situated under the labels on the record, with one playing at 78 rpm and one at 45 rpm, making the release a three-speed album. The mix of the album will also be different from the digital and CD release and have a different running order. In the dead wax of Side A is a hand-etched hologram of an angel by Tristan Duke of Infinity Light Science. “This is a really beautiful component to the Ultra LP,” says White.
‘Lazaretto’ will be released by White’s own label Third Man and XL Recordings on June 9. Click to stream the album via iTunes Radio now.
The ‘Lazaretto’ tracklisting is:
‘Would You Fight For My Love?’
‘High Ball Stepper’
‘Just One Drink’
‘Alone In My Home’
‘That Black Bat Licorice’
‘I Think I Found The Culprit’
