New track from Jack White


There have been rumours of a new Jack White album for a bit now, a follow-up to the awesome solo debut that was 2012’s Blunderbuss (and that’s not to mention the fact that the forthcoming Neil Young album appears to have had White’s involvement as well).

But it turns out -happily – that rumours of a new album were right – and his second solo album Lazaretto will be out on June 9.

According to NME this track ‘High Ball Stepper’ is not the first single proper – that will be the title track, but this instrumental track sounds like a taster for something utterly wonderful And I thought the aforementioned Blunderbuss was the best album he had been involved with since Elephant.

See what you think of this…
