Jack White has said a one or two-day festival could be next on the agenda for his brilliantly innovative Third Man Records venture.
Jack White has revealed he is concentrating on 20 new tracks as attentions turn to a second solo album.
Jack White has recorded three tracks with Butthole Surfers frontman Gibby Haynes for the latest in his Third Man Records’ Blue Series of releases, one of which, ‘Paul’s Not Home‘, can be heard via Soundcloud below.
Jack White‘s debut solo record ‘Blunderbuss‘ was the biggest selling album on the vinyl format in the US last year, reports Nielsen Soundscan.
Our Essential Listening 2012 series concludes today with The Albums.
From the ‘cohesion through experimentation’ of Tame Impala’s ‘Lonerism, through the ‘muscular power ballads, stirring, keyboard-led harmonies and call-and-response choruses’ that inform The Killers’ return with ‘Battle Born’, to the ‘sheer magnetism and unwavering belief’ which made ‘Blunderbuss’ such a successful solo debut for Jack White, we feel this rundown highlights some of the year’s truly outstanding releases that everyone should make an effort to check out.
And don’t forget, there’s only room for one place each on our Essential Listening Series, so if your favourite artist of the year isn’t included in this particular rundown, make sure you check through our previous lists to see if they’ve made an appearance elsewhere. And after that, if they’re still nowhere to be seen, maybe you should leave a comment below to let us know about it.
Jack White was the guest of Conan O’Brien’s US talk show last night (December 10th) when he aired the blues staple ‘I’m Shakin‘ with his all-female backing band.
The performance can be viewed below.
Nostalgia sifted through a cold, windswept Blackpool night as Jack White returned as a solo artist to the Empress Ballroom, an iconic venue in the history of The White Stripes’, being the chosen location for their Under Blackpool Lights DVD recording back in 2004.
White clearly felt moved enough to reminisce, exclaiming when greeting the crowd early on: ‘Hello Blackpool, or should I say, how are you? It feels good to be back’. The crowd reciprocated the warm welcome with a vociferous atmosphere throughout, especially during the healthy compliment of White Stripes tracks White delved into as part of a back catalogue to draw on that would make the majority of his contemporaries sick with envy.
