Lets us make a few assumptions just for fun:

 

1. Do you think this is a tease for a new album?

 

2. There is this rumour that Jack might be the secret buyer of the "Dark Side of The Moon" recording console. Do you think this was recorded on this? http://www.factmag.c...d-auction-1-8m/

 
3. What do you reckon about the meaning of the cover?

Well the top of that shadow of the arrow ain't the shape of an arrowhead.

 

Try saying that 10 times out loud as fast as you can. You won't regret it.

Nice. Here's to hoping a new album is full of tracks this full on and heavy! 

 

 

EDIT: A new Jack White song and barely any comments on it, damn we really need a new album to bring this place back to life!

Yeah, the shadow looks like a baseball bat.  The "arrow head" looks less like a traditional stone arrow head and more like a tooth.

 

Well the top of that shadow of the arrow ain't the shape of an arrowhead.

And here's the short film, in case anyone hasn't seen it yet--



From the Warstic website--  https://warstic.com/blogs/news/warcry

 

In the stillness of the game,
and the vastness of the mind,
our faith is challenged.
Our fate unclear.

Only a hunter's focus brings clear sight,
and reveals his mark.

In the end,
it’s not the weapon,
but the warrior, who conquers his fear.


DESCRIPTION OF THE FILM
A professional baseball player (Ian Kinsler) battles to get his mind right in the locker room before a big game. He struggles to find focus as the crowd noise outside the locker signals the impending war. We see inside the psyche of the hitter.

The hitter is taunted by a raven spirit, played by a dark, shadowy trickster-type figure (Jack White), who plays mind games with the hitter. He challenges his faith. Does he really believe in himself? Is he fearless? Does he have the grit to endure the war? The Raven brings thoughts of fear (represented by fire) to escalate the perceived magnitude of the game. The Raven gets the hitter hyper-focused on past struggles in a training session, where he can’t get his mechanics synced up. The hitter is shown getting frustrated to the point of screaming at his bat as the Raven flashes images of death (skull) to cloud the hitter's fate.

A hawk spirit, represented by a Southeast Woodlands Native Hunter (Thosh Collins), sets out from his campsite in search of the hitter's heart and mind. He carries the power of higher perspective and clear sight to quiet the hitter's thoughts and help the hitter locate his mark. As the hawk pursues him faster, and gets closer, the hitter regains belief. The hitter selects and inspects his weapon (bat) and his confidence increases. He rises, and walks down the dark tunnel toward the arena. At the end of the tunnel the hitter is taunted one last time by the raven. The hitter directly acknowledges the raven's existence (fear), but passes by without hesitation and steps onto the field hungry for a kill and focused on his task.

As the hitter and hunter draw their weapons, the hitter's mind is calm, and thru his steady breath the hunter spirit is called forward. Hitter and hunter are now one thought. Warrior. The game slows down for the Warrior as his focus comes to a razor sharp point. As the warrior raises his weapon (bat and arrow), the raven turns and walks away having accomplished his goal of transforming the hitter's mentality from the hunted, to the hunter. We end with a war cry by the warrior.

Personally, I think it's a pretty cool song with some great guitar work.  And the film is interesting, though I'm glad they included the in-depth description because I'm not sure I would have gotten the Jack-as-Raven part if they hadn't explained it. The association between the warrior and athlete is fairly obvious, but they missed an opportunity to do some cool makeup/costume on Jack to play up the Trickster Raven.

I like it. Of course it's like HBS. But good ear candy.

I read that it is Daru, but you could mistake a lot of the drumming for Meg White.
