Jack White to release solo single

White Stripes man also produces tracks by Nashville transit workers

Jack White is set to release a new solo single titled ‘Fly Farm Blues’ later this month.

The White Stripes man wrote the song at the request of film director Davis Guggenheim while filming the music documentary ‘It Might Get Loud’ with Jimmy Page and The Edge, which hits US theatres this month.

The tune is set to be released August 11 as a special vinyl 7-inch single by Nashville’s Third Man Records as well as digitally via US iTunes.


In addition, White also produced two songs by Transit, a band made up of employees of the Nashville Metro Transit Authority. The tracks, titled ‘C’mon And Ride’ and ‘Afterparty’, are about the Nashville bussing system and were written by transit authority drivers, cleaners, mechanics and office workers.

Lastly, Third Man will also release two tracks White produced for Dan Sartain. The songs are titled ‘Bohemian Grove’ and ‘Atheist Funeral’.

The White-produced tracks are set to be released digitally and on 7-inch vinyl in the US on August 11 via Third Man and US iTunes.
