New Jack White Album on The Way: Lazaretto Arriving on June 9/10

Jack White – former half of White Stripes and member of both Dead Weather and The Raconteurs - plans to release a new solo album called “Lazaretto” on June 10 as the follow-up to his 2012 debut solo effort, ‘Blunderbuss.’

Jack White Announces His New Album 'Lazaretto' To Be Released In The UK On The 9th June 2014

In addition to the album’s release in June, White announced - via both his own website and the Third Man Records site – that the title track would be released later on this month. 

“Jack White presents his new album Lazaretto, to be released June 9th/10th on Third Man Records. Lazaretto inhabits an exciting place in White’s expansive discography as the follow-up to 2012′s gold-certified international #1 Blunderbuss, and will be preceded by first single and title track “Lazaretto,” to be released later this month,” read the post. 

Those of you lucky enough to be a member of the the Third Man Record’s Vault are in line for a limited edition of the album. Pressed on split-color blue-and-white vinyl, the special bundle also includes blue vinyl 7-inch with two early demos of songs that appear on Lazaretto, a 40-page hardbound Lazaretto book, and a letter-pressed linen postcard. How about that?

According to Wikipedia, “A lazaretto or lazaret is a quarantine station for maritime travellers.” Will that be represented in the new album; will Jack White be using this new record as a place to unwind, quarantined from the rocky waves that have punctuated his career so far? 

Around the start of this year, White said he was almost done working on a new album. "It's definitely not one sound. It's definitely several. Like you heard in Blunderbuss, there's many different styles there. I don't pick my style and then write a song. I just write whatever comes out of me, and whatever style it is is what it is, and it becomes something later,” he said of the new album.
