The time has finally come: only days after announcing headlining appearances at several summer festivals including Governors Ball, Boston Calling, and Shaky Knees, and Jack White has officially returned.
As previously reported in Uncut, the album was produced by White and recorded at Sear Sound in New York City, Capitol Studios in Los Angeles, and Third Man Studio in Nashville. Now, he's unveiled the first proper single from the album with "Connected By Love", as well as a second track called "Respect Commander".
Check out the songs and video below. Check out both tracks, along with the Pasqual Gutierrez-directed video for "Connected By Love", below.

White expertly pivots through it all - plus an eye-watering guitar solo - before stripping it down to a basic piano line and then bringing everything back in again for a climactic, if rather staid, finale. His last solo album, 2014's Lazaretto, was heavy on folk with some heavy garage rock thrown in.
"Respect Commander" follows a vision.
It should come as no surprise that a special vinyl release has been lined up by Third Man for the single; it will be available from stores in Nashville and Detroit this coming Saturday for that day only.
