It has been four years since Jack White has released any music. However, today the former singer and guitar player of The White Stripes has released two new songs; ‘Connected By Love’, which has a music video directed by Pasqual Gutierrez accompanying it, and ‘Respect Commander’. These songs are from his new album ‘Boarding House Reach’ which has yet to get a release date.
Despite the break, the Michigan born musician still has it. ‘Connected By Love’ has a rock ballad feel, with heavy synths, an unforgettable organ/guitar solo, and White’s deep, meaningful lyrics that have a romantic, 60’s love song vibe. The other song ‘Respect Commander’ takes a totally different turn, with the first part of the song being a fast-paced, screeching synth, and crunchy guitar filled instrumental, that ends up turning into a lyrically driven song about a dominating woman who “Commands Respect”.
The two songs can be heard here:
These songs are available on Spotify, Apple Music, iTunes, Tidal, Third Man, and Amazon Music. To keep up to date with Jack White’s new album go give Third Man Records a follow on Instagram, or check out his website: http://jackwhiteiii.com/media/
