Jack White: 'No phones at my concerts'
Jack White made headlines when he announced that he would be banning phones at all of his tour dates in order to offer a "100% human experience."
A statement for the Jack White tour reads, "No photos, video or audio recording devices allowed.
“We think you’ll enjoy looking up from your gadgets for a little while and experience music and our shared love of it IN PERSON."
Jack White new album ‘Boarding House Reach’
‘Boarding House Reach’ will be Jack White’s third solo album after 2014’s ‘Lazaretto’ and his 14th album overall (including those made with former bands The White Stripes, The Raconteurs, and The Dead Weather).
The record was released on March 23 and went straight to number one in the US and number five in UK charts.
While recording the album, White told Interview Magazine that his new music is perfect for doing a bit of home maintenance or, bizarrely, casual street murder.
He said, “It’s good gardening music or roofing music or, you know, back-alley stabbing music. I’m trying to think of some good activities that people haven’t written songs for yet.”
In an interview for The New Yorker, White cited king of pop Michael Jackson as an influence for the new album.
He said, “I want to write like Michael Jackson would write - instead of writing parts on the instruments or humming melodies, you think of them. To do everything in my head and to do it in silence and use only one room.”
White dropped a teaser for the album called ‘Servings and Portions from my Boarding House Reach’ featuring snippets of new music against abstract visuals.
The first single to be released for the new album was ‘Connected By Love’...
...which was released on vinyl alongside b-side ‘Respect Commander’.
White released an audio stream of 'Corporation', the third single from his new album.
And a further audio-only stream for new track 'Over And Over And Over'.
The complete tracklist for Jack White’s ‘Boarding House Reach’ is:
- Connected By Love
- Why Walk A Dog?
- Abulia and Akrasia
- Ice Station Zebra
- Over and Over and Over
- Everything You've Ever Learned
