Jack White: New Album, New Video, Special 20th Vault Package

J A C K  W H I T E
Jack White presents his new album Lazaretto, to be released June 10th on Third Man Records/Columbia. Lazaretto inhabits an exciting place in White's expansive discography as the follow-up to 2012's gold-certified international #1 Blunderbuss, and will be preceded by first single and title track "Lazaretto," to be released later this month. While we await the debut of that first official single, listeners can experience a first taste of new music from the album and watch the video for new instrumental track "High Ball Stepper" here.
The aforementioned Blunderbuss was the first U.S. #1 album of Jack's storied career, also debuting at #1 in the UK, Canada, and, naturally, Switzerland. Blunderbuss was supported by an ambitious world tour featuring two backing bands, the all-male Buzzards and all-female Peacocks, notched up five GRAMMY nominations including Album of the Year, and dominated Best of 2012 lists, including being named MOJO's #1 album of 2012.

In celebration of the new album and their 20th Vault package, Third Man has unveiled their most unique Vault package yet.
The LP for Third Man Records' VAULT PACKAGE #20 will be the ONLY limited version of Lazaretto to be released. Pressed on split-color blue-and-white vinyl and coupled with exclusive album art, this alternate presentation of the album is both insightful and deserving. Also exclusive to the Vault is a fold-out poster accompanying the album, featuring a classic National Archives photo that serves as a recurrent image throughout the album art.

Unlike the lightning bolt and inverted lightning bolt pressings Third Man did for Jack White's Blunderbuss, this alternate art and colored vinyl will be the only time ANY variation on Lazaretto will be made. Once subscriptions are closed and records are pressed... that's it. Don't sleep. Get in now or regret it later.

The 7-inch includes two early demos of songs that appear on Lazaretto in their completed form. Both "Alone in My Home" and "Entitlement" are solo recordings by Jack White, done while he was in Mexico. Pressed on lustrous blue vinyl and housed in the standard felt-weave, die-cut Third Man Vault 7-inch sleeve, both tracks offer a unique glimpse into the creative process and evolution of a song from it's original germination to its final delivery.

The bonus item is a lavish 40-page hard bound companion piece book full of lyrics, exclusive musical notations, photos and art from Lazaretto. This is the perfect accompaniment to the listening experience and insight into both the album creation method and some of the inspiration (visual and otherwise) behind it.

In addition to these items, Vault package #20 will also include a linen, letter-pressed postcard with the same eye-popping color separations as evidenced in classic chromatic postcards popular in the first half of the 20th century. Stamps not included.

You can download, re-post, and share the FREE track from the following link: Maggie Bjorklund "The Anchor Song"

Maggie will be joining Jack White on the road on selected dates throughout the spring and summer promoting his new record Blunderbluss, out in April via Third Man Records. In between she will also be headlining two shows in the Netherlands, supporting Laura Gibson in Belgium, and performing at Bloodshot’s official showcase at Red Eyed Fly on Saturday, 3/17 during Austin’s SXSW festival.

Following these live dates, Maggie will be returning to the studio in the US to record the follow-up album to Coming Home.

Further bio, tour, and contact information can be found below.


Early in her career, Maggie was best known in Europe as a guitarist for The Darleens and influential group Miss B Haven. After the breakup of Miss B Haven, Maggie discovered the pedal steel and soon made trails to Nashville, where she studied with pedal steel legend, Jeff Newman, and quickly found herself immersed in the Seattle music scene lending her talents to Christy McWilson, Mark Pickerel (Screaming Trees), Giant Sand and John Doe.

After spending years perfecting her skills on the pedal steel as a supporting player, in 2011 Maggie released her beautiful solo debut Coming Home through Bloodshot Records, an album featuring Calexico (Joey Burns and John Convertino), Mark Lanegan, Jon Auer and Rachel Flotard.

"Bjorklund's playing and songwriting conjure up romanticized roadhouses and late-afternoon sunlight filtered through whiskey, smoke and windows coated with decades' worth of dust. It's enough to make you want to jump ship and join her in whatever voyage she's on." - NPR
