Jack White‘s solo career continues with the announcement of Lazaretto, due in stores on June 10th in the US and June 9th in the UK. According to the press release, Lazaretto “inhabits an exciting place in White’s expansive discography as the follow-up to 2012′s gold-certified international #1 Blunderbuss.” Never before has so much excitement been generated by proximity to a follow-up. Time will only tell what this actually means… if anything.
Third Man Records also announced a limited edition of the record, which will mark the 20th vault release from the label. Pressed on split-color blue-and-white vinyl, the LP will also come with an exclusive 40-page book, poster art, a bonus 7″, and something called a “linen, letter-pressed postcard with the same eye-popping color separations.” Preorders are happening now and once the record is sold out, it will be gone forever. Asking price is $60.
Finally, White also released an instrumental track from the album. This is not to be confused with the first single off the album. That’s expected later this month.
