New Jack White Album, Boarding House Reach, Planned For March

Jack White is no stranger to the inner circle of Rock, an area of comfort that he has been a part of for some time. His beginning is with The White Stripes, a band he was in alongside his wife. As a successful duo, they released six studio albums, all well-received. After a time of stress, The White Stripes called it a musical day. After that, Jack White (who retained his wife’s surname after their 2013 divorce), turned to solo recording. releasing the Gold-selling Blunderbuss album in 2012. Since, he has released one other solo effort, Lazaretto (2014).

On March 23, Jack White will release his third solo work, Boarding House Reach via his own Third Man Records, distributed via Columbia Records. The new album will contain thirteen new songs. Boarding House Reach will be issued on CD, and in DD.

The latest new song is in release. You can listen to “Connected By Love” below in the YouTube video. A bit of exploration will net you audio releases (on YouTube) for two other tracks from the album (“Respect Commander“, and  “Corporation“). You can purchase “Connected By Love” as a 7″ vinyl single with “Respect Commander” as its B-side.
