September 9th, baby. Santa’s coming September 9th this year.
I was pretty bummed about Jack White’s hiatus from the road that he announced a while back, but that doesn’t mean he stopped working. Since then, he’s been releasing live albums via Third Man Records, become a pretty legit photographer, and sending records up to outer space. You know, NBD.
But, surprise. We get “new” ear candy from him now! Sorta.
9/9 is when we get Jack White Acoustic Recordings 1998-2016 via Third Man Records. Eighteen years worth of Jack White in yours ears including The Raconteurs, The White Stripes, and just the man himself. Including “City Lights,” a long lost track from The White Stripes, which was supposed to be on Get Behind Me Satan. Click the play button to check it out yourself. I like!
That should easily hold me over until the second Friday of September rolls around. Consequence of Sound has more of the story covered here.
