Jack White Releases New Singles For The First Time In 4 Years [Listen]

first_imgFollowing a mysterious video posted in December called “Servings and Portions from my Boarding House Reach”, the buzz around Jack White’s new album has growing. Called Boarding House Reach, the album will mark White’s third solo album and the first formal music project he’s released since 2014’s Lazaretto.Jack White Teases New Solo Project In Mysterious Video Featuring Neal Evans & Louis Cato [Watch]Today, White dropped the lead single off the new album, “Connected By Love” and its subsequent music video directed by Pasqual Gutierrez, as well as a second track called “Respect Commander”. Both of these numbers also feature drummer Louis Cato (Beyoncé/Q-Tip/John Legend), keyboardist Neal Evans (Soulive/Talib Kweli/John Scofield), bassist Charlotte Kemp Muhl (The Ghost Of A Saber Tooth Tiger), percussionist Bobby Allende (David Byrne), and backing vocalists Ann and Regina McCrary of the gospel trio The McCrary Sisters.“Connected By Love” was produced and recorded in three different locations across the United States—Sear Sound in New York City, Capitol Studios in Los Angeles, and Third Man Studio in Nashville—marking the first time White has ever recorded an album in the cities of L.A. or NYC. Both songs will appear on the upcoming album, Boarding House Reach.As White told Rolling Stone, the song was written in his Nashville apartment. He elaborated, “I just started humming notes out loud, staring out the window. After that, you really can’t explain it. You just have to get out of the way and let it happen. And you don’t really notice it as it’s happening.” He also told the media outlet that originally the refrain said “I’m Infected By Love”, adding, “I thought ‘Well, people won’t get that metaphor — they’ll turn that into, ‘Well, Do you have an STD, or something?’ [laughs] It might hurt the rest of the messages of the song if I kept that as the main thing. So I changed ‘Infected’ to ‘Connected’ and then started to feed off of that.”You can watch the music video for “Connected By Love” and listen to “Respect Commander” below. For those who are digging what they’re hearing, you can purchase limited-edition 7″ vinyls of the tracks at Jack White’s Third Man Records’ stores in Nashville and Detroit this Saturday, January 13th.last_img read more

Senator Liesing talks education

first_imgOldenburg, In. — Ensuring Indiana students have the opportunity to receive a quality education is always a top priority for me.During the 2018 legislative session, I supported several bills aimed at improving Indiana’s education system.House Enrolled Act 1001 provides the additional funding needed due to higher-than-expected enrollment in public schools for the 2017-18 and 2018-19 school year, which will give schools the per-student funding allowed by the 2017 budget. With this bill, all Indiana schools will see a per-student increase, even if their enrollment declined.House Enrolled Act 1426 adjusts Indiana’s diploma system to make sure all high-school graduates are provided with a better, more effective pathway into college or the workforce. To do this, HEA 1426 paves the way to create more ways for students to graduate, ensuring they are on an education path that benefits their future.For more information on legislation passed this session, click here.last_img read more

first_imgA Broward County lawmaker has proposed a bill that would remove the option of religious exemptions from childhood vaccinations in Florida.Sen. Lauren Book, D-Plantation, introduced the bill (SB 64), which would also create a panel to review certain medical exemptions from immunizations.The bill has been referred to the Senate Committee on Health Policy, chaired by Sen. Gayle Harrell, R-Stuart.Floridians opposed to mandatory childhood immunizations are already rallying against the bill.A petition aimed at stopping Book’s bill headlined “Severe Threat on Human Rights” was created on Change.org and has 3,767 signatures as of Tuesday, The Ledger reports.A spokesperson for Book said she is “concerned about the public health, tourism, and fiscal impact of a measles outbreak like those we’ve seen originate in California or New York.”The move has created controversy for Book who has reportedly received severe criticism on social media.“On her official Facebook page, one critic posted a doctored photo showing Book, who is jewish, with a Hitler mustache and wearing a Nazi uniform,” according to The Ledger.Book is standing by her proposed bill citing that she has met with religious officials who said “No modern-day religion discourages vaccination.”I filed SB 64 tightening vaccine exemptions after being approached by rabbis, priests & imams- no modern-day religion discourages vaccination. FL is NOT prepared 4 a measles outbreak bt studies show we R extremely vulnerable. FL must ACT-not REACThttps://t.co/eF6dbQ4zIM #FlaPol— Lauren Book (@Book4Senate) September 18, 2019last_img read more
