The musician is set to release his first album since 2014’s ‘Lazaretto‘ later this month on his own Third Man Records label and Columbia. It will be available from March 23.
White discussed ‘Over And Over And Over’ in an interview earlier this year, saying he had tried to record it many times before, including with The White Stripes and, on a separate occasion, with Jay-Z. “It was sort of my white whale. I chased it and chased it, and finally, all of a sudden, it worked,” he told Rolling Stone.

White recently declared that “rock n’ roll needs an injection of new blood” in order to dominate festival line-ups once again.
The former White Stripes, Dead Weather and Raconteurs frontman turned solo star was appearing on KROQ‘s The Kevin And Bean Show, when he was asked about a decline in the number of rock acts appearing on this year’s festival bills.
“Rock ‘n’ roll needs an injection of some new young blood to really just knock everybody dead right now,” said White. “It think it’s brewing and brewing and it’s about to happen. And I think that it’s good. Since rock ‘n’ roll’s inception, every 10, 12 years, there’s a breath of fresh air and a new injection of some sort of what you could I guess call ‘punk attitude’ or something like that, a wildness.”
