Jack White releases blistering new music from ‘Lazaretto’: No foolin’

For anyone seriously considering a house remodel, celebrated home "de-constructor" Jack White has the perfect solution for removing those last few stubborn paint chips. Just 30 seconds of his scorching new cut “High Ball Stepper” cranked up to 150 decibels is guaranteed to peel anything and everything off of the wall.

White released the instrumental track April 1 to provide the masses a sizzling taste of his much anticipated new album “Lazaretto,” to be released June 10 on White’s own Third Man Records. The eardrum-busting guitarist revealed the plans for the new full-length earlier this year in a chat with fans on Third Man’s message board. “I'm producing two albums this month, and finishing them,” he professed. “One of them is mine.”

“Lazaretto” is the ex-White Stripes frontman’s follow-up to 2012’s “Blunderbuss,” the first U.S. #1 album of his celebrated career. “Blunderbuss” racked up five GRAMMY nominations including Album of the Year, and dominated “Best of 2012” lists.

Music lovers can pre-order a special limited edition copy of “Lazaretto” through April 30 by subscribing to the Third Man Records' Vault. The unique version of the new record – the only limited edition to be released – offers a fold-out poster of a classic National Archives photo, a 7-inch featuring two early demos of “Lazaretto” cuts (“Alone in My Home” and “Entitlement”) and the album pressed on split-color blue-and-white vinyl.

And for the rare dissatisfied "lottery winner," Third Man is including a linen, letter-pressed postcard and a 40-page hard bound manuscript complete with lyrics, exclusive musical notations, photos and exclusive album art. Subscriptions to Third Man Records’ Vault are open through April 30, so don't miss out on the opportunity and visit
