Jack White Shares Poem Not About Tidal

Last night, Jack White published a poem called “Music Is Sacred” on his Third Man Records blog. Logically, it would appear to be in response to the reaction to his stilted and off-putting Tidal Q&A from earlier this week. It reads like a plea to maintain the “sanctity of music” by not letting those grubby… More »

Third Man Details Extensive Record Store Day 2015 Plans

Jack White loves limited edition curios, so it’s unsurprising that his label takes Record Store Day very seriously — so seriously, in fact, that Third Man Records released three separate announcements stating what kind of very expensive and very inessential stuff they would be hocking for this year’s holiday.

Jack White, T Bone Burnett, & Robert Redford Launch American Epic Film And Music Series

Some people are skeptical of the artists-as-entrepreneurs stage of late capitalism — cough Tidal cough — but since people generally become superstars through some semblance of talent, some of this stuff has to turn out decently. Consider American Epic, which is the three-part documentary, feature film, and recording series brought to us by the combined… More »

Watch Jack White And Robert Plant Play Led Zeppelin’s “The Lemon Song” At Lollapalooza Argentina

The nicest thing I’ve ever heard anyone say about Jack White is that he’s Robert Plant and Jimmy Page if they were the same person. That gets at White’s appeal, but when you sit White next to the genuine article, you see that he still has a ways to go. Over the weekend, White headlined… More »

Q&A: Noel Gallagher On Kanye, Beck, Beyoncé, Moz, Jack White, Black Keys, & More

Back when I was first becoming an obsessive music fan, Oasis were big for me. I loved everything: the classic albums, of course, but also the mid-period stuff most people dismiss.

Jack White’s solo album Lazaretto is nearly a year old now, and it hasn’t run out of steam yet. White just made a new video for “That Black Bat Licorice,” the unhinged rocker he played on The Tonight Show earlier this month. Or, rather, he made three different videos for the song.
