To mark the announcement, White has shared the self-directed official video for ‘Taking Me Back’ – watch it below.

According to a press release, Jack White has been busy writing and recording new music over the past few years – resulting in “two entirely different albums” that are “each defined by different inspirations, different themes [and] different moods”.

Back in September, White delivered a surprise performance on a London rooftop to celebrate the opening of a new Third Man Records store in the capital. Prior to the roof appearance, the musician played in the blue basement of the Soho shop.

During an interview around that time, White spoke about feeling “scared and confused” if there isn’t any “struggle” in his life.

“If art is not being made in some way, I start worrying,” he explained. “I wish I could pinpoint why this is necessary for me. I can’t get away from it.”
