Jack White

This past weekend, for Record Store Day, Jack White attempted the “world’s fastest record” — recording and pressing vinyl copies of his new song “Lazaretto” in three hours and change. But “Lazaretto” is also the title track from White’s forthcoming solo album, and the live-in-studio version of it that White recorded on Saturday isn’t the one that will appear on the album. White just shared the proper studio version, and it’s a beast, a strutting riff rocker with an absolutely feral guitar solo and some out-of-nowhere old-timey country fiddle work toward the end. Listen to that version and check out the album’s tracklist, which also features the previously posted “High Ball Stepper,” below.

01 “Three Women
02 “Lazaretto”
03 “Temporary Ground”
04 “Would You Fight For My Love?”
05 “High Ball Stepper”
06 “Just One Drink”
07 “Alone In My Home”
08 “Entitlement”
09 “That Black Bat Licorice “
10 “I Think I Found The Culprit”
11 “Want And Able”

Lazaretto is out 6/10 on Third Man/Columbia.

  1. so. fucking. badass.

  2. fuck yeah

  3. Mother of god.

  4. Of course I love it.

  5. I’m honestly really excited for this album now

  6. I enjoyed Blunderbuss for the most part, but this and High Ball Stepper are making me think Lazaretto is going to blow it away.

  7. Anyone getting a bit of a Rage Against the Machine vibe on this (at least before the fiddle comes in)?

    If this and High Ball Stepper are any indication of the rest of the album, it’s going to be one that just makes the walls rumble and crumble down.

  8. Frickin’ finally. Me = excited.

  9. This is Jack White at his swaggiest, that beat sounds a lot like the funky drummer and its awesome.

  10. I can’t believe I didn’t get a chance to see him preform this album live. I just keep watching his video for “Would You Fight For My Love?” to try to fill the void. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MQOnbp_DspY
