HAH! Jack really came through on this new one. At first, I was a little on the fence about this whole solo thing, but he's really starting to convince me on this latest single of his, "Lazaretto."
Yeah, I understand that his voice, guitar tone, songwriting style hasn't exactly done a 180 since the demise of the White Stripes--which you could argue he had an incredible amount of control over, making it a solo project in a sense--but I think Jack comes through with a decent track and some flashy accompaniment from organ, horns, and some glitchy synths as well. Since going #1 with Blunderbuss, he's obviously making more instrumental strides and sending that ambition through the roof.
And that fiddle solo? Don't even hate.
If you didn't already know, Mr. White has a new album titled Lazaretto dropping on June 10th.
