Jack White will release Blunderbuss, his debut album as a solo artist, on Third Man Records/Columbia on April 24th. "Love Interruption," the first track to be released from the record, will be released today – first as a stream on White's official site, and later as a digital single on sale in the usual shops at 9 p.m. PT. A vinyl single will be released on February 7th backed with a non-album track, "Machine Gun Silhouette."

White produced Blunderbuss at his Third Man Studio in Nashville, Tennessee.  In a statement, White said that Blunderbuss is "an album I couldn't have released until now. I've put off making records under my own name for a long time but these songs feel like they could only be presented under my name. These songs were written from scratch, had nothing to do with anyone or anything else but my own expression, my own colors on my own canvas."

You can preview "Love Interruption" in the stream below.

Song Stories

“Vans”

The Pack | 2006

Berkeley, California rappers the Pack made their footwear choice clear in 2006 with the song "Vans." The track caught the attention of Too $hort, who signed them to his imprint. MTV refused to play the video for the song, though, claiming it was essentially a commercial for the product. Rapper Lil' B disagreed. "I didn’t know nobody [at] Vans," he said. "I was just a rapper who wore Vans." Even without MTV's support, Lil' B recognized the impact of the track. "God blessed me with such a revolutionary song… People around my age know who really started a lot of the dressing people are into now."
