Jack White - "Connected by Love" and "Respect Commander"

Jack White -

Jack White has released "Connected by Love", the first single from his eagerly anticipated third solo album, Boarding House Reach (Third Man/Columbia).

After teasing fans with a freaky new video in December, the former White Stripes frontman has now confirmed that he'll release the follow-up to 2014's Lazaretto via Third Man Records and Columbia.

White has also announced three USA festival headline performances: Shaky Knees in Atlanta (May 4-6), Boston Calling 2018 (May 25-27), and Governor's Ball in New York (June 1-3).

White took a complete break in the wake of Lazaretto's release back in 2014, but is preparing a live return at Governors Ball and Boston Calling, and is now back with some concrete details about his third solo effort. Check out both tracks, along with the Pasqual Gutierrez-directed video for "Connected By Love", below.

Experimental B-side "Respect Commander" - very much not lead-single material, but also on the album - is a timely reminder that White remains the guitar-god we all know and love.

Amongst his worldwide honors, White's long run of career Grammy awards and nominations saw Blunderbuss earning five nods over two years, including "Album of the Year", "Best Rock Album", "Best Rock Song" (for "Freedom At 21"), "Best Rock Performance", and "Best Music Video" (the latter two honoring the single, "I'm Shakin").
