Jack White Shares New Songs “Connected By Love” & “Respect Commander”

posted by Oscar January 10, 2018

Guitar God Jack White has returned! The man behind Third Man Records has announced his follow-up to 2014’s Lazaretto will be entitled Boarding House Reach. Though it lacks a release date, we did get a glimpse of the album as White unveiled two new songs today in “Respect Commander” and “Connected by Love.” The latter premiered on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 show as the World Record.

With both of these tracks it feels like Folky jams are out the window, with the former White Stripes leader adopting a more spacey, Electronica, Prog-Rock vibe. “Respect Commander” feels like White has been jamming to Africa Bambaataa, but he still allows the 6-string hero to shine at the end.

Both tracks are out now as a 7″ vinyl single via Third Man. This Saturday, January 13, limited edition tri-color 7″ will be available at Third Man’s Nashville and Detroit locations.

White has also shared the music video for lead track “Connected by Love,” which was directed by Pasqual Gutierrez. Check that out and stream both tunes below. Continue Reading
