Jack White announces release date for solo album 'Lazaretto'

Jack White has finally revealed the title and release date for his long awaited new solo album, along with a sneak peek in the form of a track called High Ball Stepper (which you can check out below) and a plan to get himself into the record books on Record Store Day.

The LP, 'Lazaretto', will be released on June 6 via White's own Third Man Records in conjunction with Sony Music Entertainment Australia.

Jack has another trick up his sleeve before then though, as he plans to unleash the “world’s fastest released record” in honour of Record Store Day.

The idea , according to a post on the Third Man website, is that on the morning of April 19 White will perform the LP's title track in front of a hand selected audience at Third Man Records Nashville Studios. From there the recordings will be sent United Record Pressing, which located nearby to be pressed into a limited edition 7" vinyl while someone else creates cover art using images from the live session. The finished records will then be whisked back to Third Man in time for them to go onsale on Record Store Day proper, April 20.
