Jack White is the Detroit-spawned, Nashville-residing co-founder of some of the most captivating bands of the last two decades, including The White Stripes, The Raconteurs, and The Dead Weather, as well as of the Third Man Records recording label. In 2012, White released his first solo album Blunderbuss, which debuted at No. 1 on the U.S. albums chart and received five GRAMMY nominations, including Album of the Year, Best Rock Album, Best Rock Song for “Freedom at 21,” and, the following year, Best Rock Performance and Best Music Video for “I’m Shakin’.”
His second solo album, 2014’s Lazaretto, also debuted at No. 1 on the U.S. albums chart, and it not only broke the record for first-week vinyl album sales (selling more than 40,000 copies in the U.S.), but it was also the biggest selling vinyl album of 2014 and any year of the SoundScan era. The album’s title track won a GRAMMY Award for Best Rock Performance. Lazaretto received two additional GRAMMY nominations for Best Alternative Music Album and Best Rock Song for the title track.
Boarding House Reach, White's third solo album, will be released on March 23, featuring a collection of songs that are simultaneously timeless and modern. Written and conceived while holed up in a Spartan apartment with no outside distractions, White replicated the identical environment and used the same gear as when he was a 15 year old (a quarter-inch, four-track tape recorder, a simple mixer, and the most basic of instrumentation) to pen sketches of the album’s songs. The album explores a remarkable range of sonic terrain – crunching rock 'n' roll, electro and hard funk, proto punk, hip hop, gospel blues, and even country – all remapped and born anew to fit White's matchless vision and sense of restless experimentation.
