Would You Fight for Jack White’s Love?

It’s been a little while since we’ve heard anything from Jack white, but the music legend is back in the news and no not for his sad Jack White memes.

Today, the musician released the music video for one of the tracks from his recently released album, Lazaretto.

The video for the song, “Would You Fight for My Love?” takes place at a dark bar which looks like it should exist in the 1950’s era rather 2014 and makes you question what exactly is real.

The clip also introduces the watcher to White’s new haircut. We’ll be honest, we miss his long, stringy hair.

According to a press release about the production of the video, the video for the track was conceptualized, produced and shot in a 24 hour time period. The six-hour shoot was reportedly done with less than 12 hour notice for those involved.

But then again, this music video is for the man who managed to record, press and distribute a vinyl in four hours. Time is no issue for him.

After taking a break from his “Lazaretto” tour, White is set to finish up the North American leg of it which picks up at Merriweather Post Pavillion in Columbia, MD on Sunday, Sept. 14.

UPDATE:

Looks like Jack White really is giving fans his new album ahead of the time. The singer revealed that the full record can be heard over at iTunes First Play.

Lazaretto Track List:

1. “Three Women”
2. “Lazaretto”
3. “Temporary Ground”
4. “Would You Fight For My Love?”
5. “High Ball Stepper”
6. “Just One Drink”
7. “Alone In My Home”
8. “Entitlement”
9. “That Black Bat Licorice”
10. “I Think I Found The Culprit”
11. “Want And Able”


Jack White has already proven that he is a master of doing musical things and we’re pretty sure that at the rate he is going, releasing songs from his upcoming new album Lazaretto, the fans will have the full album before the record hits stores.

During the weekend, video footage surfaced of White, who is in the middle of his Lazaretto Tour performing a new song which is assumed to be from the anticipated album. The song is titled “Temporary Ground” and takes more of a twangy route than White’s White Stripes days, but then again, Third Man Records is in Nashville. Anyway, check out the new song (live) below.

If you haven’t already heard, White has been keeping a little busy in the meantime. Recently, he slammed several artists including The Black Keys to which he reportedly said in an interview that they were “ripping him off” and even though it wasn’t a dig at former White Stripe bandmate, Meg, he does say that they haven’t spoken in a long time and today, he issued an official apology to those that he might have “offended.” The full apology can be read over at this website.

Yesterday, we revealed how Jack White was able to beat a world record without even knowing that such a record had existed before his plan was set in motion.

The record at hand? World’s Fastest Record Release.

Besides giving fans who were not able to head to his Third Man Records in Nashville on Record Store Day experiment a look at just what took place, White also released the live recording of one of his new songs, “Lazaretto,” the lead single and title track from his upcoming new album due out on June 10.

Below is the official video that was released earlier today which finds us listen to two programs directors who got to first hand experience what went on as White attempted to accomplished his record-breaking accomplishment. In total, it took about four hours from the live performance/recording in the morning, to the master being taken to the United Press plant in town to the actual vinyls making their way back to Third man Records where present fans were able to purchase it for $30.

The live version of “Lazaretto” can be heard around the 7:20 mark, but if you are really interested in what went down during Record Store Day, then watch the full 11-minute clip.

White also decided to release the official audio from the upcoming album as well as the track list for it. All that can be seen after the recap of Record Store Day.

LAZARETTO TRACKLIST:

Jack White has a busy summer ahead of him including many festival,s but it looks like that isn’t the only thing he has planned. Today, it was revealed that the former White Stripes frontman will be releasing his second solo album later this year.

The album will be titled Lazaretto and is set to be released on June 10th through Columbia Records and White’s own record label, Third Man Records. The first official single from the upcoming record won’t be released for a little, but that hasn’t stopped White from releasing an instrumental song titled “High Ball Stepper.”

Third Man Records has revealed its plan to release the album as part of its Vault Subscription which will feature a package of lots of bonus stuff such as Lazaretto EP on blue and white split-color vinyl, a fold out poster, a 7-inch demo version of two of the songs on the album and a few more objects. For those interested, the package is “Vault Package #20.”

If that sounds like something you’d like, the last day to sign up for it will be April 30 at midnight.

Check out “High Ball Stepper” here and hopefully it will hold you over until the lead single is released.
