No…this is not an April Fool’s joke! Jack White is planning to follow up his stellar 2012 debut Blunderbuss with a new project! The rocker has announced that his sophomore album Lazaretto will be released on June 10 via Third Man Records.
Just for good measure, he followed up the announcement by dropped a brand new tune – “High Ball Stepper.”
Listen to the album’s bluesy instrumental single below:
Aside from his sophomore album, Jack White has a handful of other projects in the works – a collaboration on Neil Young‘s upcoming solo album and new music with Dead Weather. But the big question remains unanswered – will we ever hear from The Raconteurs ever again?

In the most exciting news of 2013 so far, The Dead Weather has just announced their official comeback to the music industry. The rock band (which consists of star players like (The Kills‘ Allison Mosshart, Queens of the Stone Age‘s Dean Fertita of Queens of the Stone Age, The Greenhornes & The Raconteurs‘ Jack Lawrence and of course Jack White) formed back in 2009 and gave us album gems like 2009’s Horehound and 2010’s Sea of Cowards before taking a three-year hiatus. But…now they’re back!
The band hit the studio to record back in August, but they’ve just revealed they will be releasing two-song singles from now until 2015 – the year when their third album will drop. Third Man Records made a statement about the news: “[The songs] are unlike anything else the band has ever done and are both ample reminders of the ferocity of this motley collection of low-lifes, grifters and ne’er-do-wells. These songs are not throw-aways. These songs are not demos. These songs are not outtakes.” The songs will be available on both on vinyl and digital. So exciting!
In the meantime, listen to a snippet of their new song “Open Up (That’s Enough)”:
