It needed to happen sooner, rather than later!

 

Jack White presents his new album, LAZARETTO, to be released June 9th/10th on Third Man Records.
Experience a first taste of new music from the album and watch the
video for new instrumental track "High Ball Stepper" now while we await
the debut of first official single and title track "Lazaretto" later this month: http://smarturl.it/HighBallStepper


In celebration of the new album and their 20th Vault Package, Third Man
& Jack have also unveiled a special Lazaretto Vault package
featuring: a limited edition Lazaretto LP pressed on split-color blue
and white vinyl coupled with exclusive album art, a lustrous blue vinyl
7-inch with two early demos of songs that appear on Lazaretto, a 40-page
hard bound Lazaretto book and a letter-pressed linen postcard.

This will be the ONLY limited version of Lazaretto that is released. Visit http://thirdmanstore...um-subscription for more information and to sign up before subscriptions close on April 30th.

 

High Ball Stepper:

Such a cool name

 

Lazaretto Vechio, an island in the Venice lagoon was used as a hospital for lepers.  Lazaretto then became the term for an area of quarantine.

 

So - a quarantine from mediocre music, or all the poisonous stuff in society/media?  Lazaretto is a sanctuary...

Fascinating! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lazaretto

 

JW really needs to play the Lazaretto Ballroom in Pennsylvania! http://www.lazarettoballroom.com/

Looks like those who've been jonesing for more guitar-centric stuff from Jack are gonna get their wish, new song is a beast. The video reminds me of Tool, love how weird & abstract it is (at least on my phone screen). And that Vault package sounds fucking insane, count me in.

I haven't been this excited over the release of an album since Michael Jackson's Invincible.  Jack's got something, for sure.

Amazing news. I heard some bluesy stuff on High Ball Stepper... Sounds really great. Hopefully we will get more blues on the album. Can't wait! 

 

A free download of the album on release date would be a great gift but I doubt TMR will give that for free when they expect people to buy the regular vinyl / cd or buy the album from iTunes.
