Jack White famously cut the White Stripes album White Blood Cells in a single week, but he spent a lot more time crafting his second-ever solo release, Lazaretto (due June 10th on Third Man Records/Columbia). He tells Rolling Stone that he laid down tracks with his two live backing bands — the all-male Buzzards and all-female Peacocks — during pauses in touring behind 2012’s Blunderbuss, then spent a year and a half refining the tracks into the 11-track album he’s releasing next month. The record will arrive in various formats, including a special Ultra LP, which features goodies like two hidden tracks obscured beneath the center labels and a different running order from the digital and CD versions.

So far, White has let fans hear blazing instrumental “High Ball Stepper” and the super-groovy title track, which the Nashville-based musician recorded, pressed and distributed (a limited-edition version) in under four hours — setting a record — on Record Store Day. Today, Rolling Stone exclusively brings you the third: the pounding blues of “Just One Drink.”

White is launching a big tour to support Lazaretto May 29th in Tulsa; the trek wraps in early August at Canada’s Osheaga fest. The album is available for pre-sale on iTunes here, and on the Third Man Records store here.
