Jack White has released a new song for upcoming solo album titled, "Lazaretto," due out on June 10. The track, "High Ball Stepper," completely instrumental with no vocals but deep and piercing guitar riffs accompanied by human-like shrieking, is the first of new material following White's perfectly diverse debut solo album, "Blunderbuss," released in 2012. "High Ball Stepper," also comprised of a drumming piano, is White's classic fusion of blues and rock but with super intense vibrations.

We can expect more of White's divergent musical master mind behind the sound of the sophomore record, "Lazaretto." White telling Rolling Stone's in an interview last year, "It's definitely not one sound, he said of the new material. "It's definitely several." Adding, "I like to write whatever comes out of me, and whatever style it is is what it is, and it becomes something later."

Check out "High Ball Stepper" above along with the visual pounding music video. Don't miss the echoing guitar at the end just when you think the song is over. You can pre-order a special limited edition of "Lazaretto," by signing up for the Third Man Records' Vault. White already has festival dates set for this summer including, Governors Ball, Bonnaroo, and Forecastle Festival. Jack White's group the Dead Weather will also return with a new album in 2015.

"High Ball Stepper" is an energetic, static wave of massive music, that, if coincides with the theme of the album, will result in another installment of Jack White's magic touch.
