Excited about the first solo effort from former White Stripe Jack White next month. Big fan of his work, especially Van Lear Rose, the Lorettea Lynn project he produced and played on a few years back. Spectacular album, if you don't own it, you should; her part on each song was done in one take. He also has a side project- The Rancoutours' that is definitely on my radar, but as yet unexplored.
I've heard a couple of tracks off of the new record and so far, I like. See the video for the very cool "Love Interruption" here. Super talented and unique, I really look forward to this record. Face it, Jack White has got it going on, who else has the (ahem) 'guts' to get up in front of President Obama and Paul McCartney and pull this off?
