Following 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.
