One of music’s hardest working creators brings a love weapon and a clarinet under the mistletoe with Ghanaian vocals in his latest single Love Interruption. Jack White and Ruby Amanfu (Sam & Ruby) peel through layers of cynical love and aggressive stanzas in this chapped recording off White’s self-produced debut album Blunderbuss, out April 24th (Third Man Records). The musical daredevil remains industrious and moody with yet another ninja move on the one-man-band front. With his powerhouse vocals, White rolls over strings and electric keys dropping legend into his handcrafted rhapsodies as Amanfu weaves in a lustrous backup with vocal depth breathing shades of Nina Simone and fresh face Mirel Wagner.
The punk-folk king and Grammy glutton also peeps about his solo debut, (unofficially released for download) Machine Gun Silhouette, as he teases audiences with nothing more than lip-biting anticipation. The apparent blues-sass beat has been catwalking the web with sly coverage and shy of a single sound byte. Sneak-buzz also alludes to his asymmetrical collaborations, this time with flashback icon Tom Jones. Jack White fans, no need look forlorn until April 24 as the rockstar has a slew of appearances calling to take action now for the Blunderbuss hustle, including this year’s back-by-popular-demand Hangout Music Fest, the Sasquatch Festival, Bonnaroo, and London’s Radio 1’s Hackney Weekend. For urgent fan fixes, album pre-orders are open and the sexy single Love Interruption is available on digital. Not meant for V-Day romance, but love nonetheless with bullseye timing.
