So there I was two nights ago. I was embracing my insomnia and listening to music when I forgot about this podcast I had, which I managed to keep forgetting to listen to. It was about 11:30p, so I did what anyone who wants to focus on something does: I went for a walk. I walked from my house to the University of Utah and back down South Temple enjoying how nice the city can look when you only see its form. The lack of detail was good, non-distracting company. The perfect place to be to listen to my favorite musician talk about his upcoming album.
Jack White's new album will finally be released on June 10th. It's his second solo album and there are rumors of another Racountours album along with an infrequent release of music from The Dead Weather. And since he has a new album coming out he has been hitting the interview gauntlet pretty hard. The one must here interview is from NPR's "All Songs Considered" where Jack breaks down some of the new songs, his songwriting, his love of studio spontaneity and his dislike for keeping things around that aren't perfect.
If you've been waiting for some new music from Mr. White and June 10th still seems too far away this interview should tide you over.
