Jack White has released a brand new single, “Connected by Love,” from his anticipated third solo album, Boarding House Reach (Third Man/Columbia), and a second track from the new album, “Respect Commander,” as well. Both tracks are available digitally worldwide now.
“Connected by Love” was produced by White and recorded at Sear Sound in New York City, Capitol Studios in Los Angeles, and Third Man Studio in Nashville – marking the first time that White has recorded an album in NY and LA. The track features White on vocals, synthesizer, and acoustic guitar, with backing by a new lineup of musicians that includes drummer Louis Cato (Beyoncé, Q-Tip, John Legend), bassist Charlotte Kemp Muhl (The Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger), synthesizer player DJ Harrison, keyboardist Neal Evans (Soulive, Talib Kweli, John Scofield), percussionist Bobby Allende (David Byrne), and backing vocalists Ann & Regina McCrary of Nashville’s beloved gospel trio, The McCrary Sisters.
The 7″ vinyl is also available today via Third Man Records, and the single arrives later this week at independent record stores globally. In addition, a limited edition tri-color 7″ will be on sale for one day only, Saturday, January 13th, exclusively at Third Man Records storefronts in Nashville and Detroit, available only for as long as the line for them lasts and never to be made accessible online. Additional information about how to purchase the tri-color can be found at thirdmanrecords.com.
A thought-provoking companion video accompanies “Connected by Love” was filmed in Los Angeles and Nashville by director Pasqual Gutierrez.
White will celebrate the new album with a number of festival performances, including Shaky Knees in Atlanta (May 4th-6th), Boston Calling 2018 (May 25th-27th), and Governor’s Ball in New York (June 1st-3rd). Additional dates will be unveiled soon. Updates and ticket availability can be found at jackwhiteiii.com/tour-dates.
