Since the White Stripes disbanded last February, Jack White has been writing new material for a solo record due for release this year. The first single to be aired online is Love Interruption, a beautiful acoustic duet with wonderful harmonizing from his backing singer. White's debut album Blunderbuss (Third Man Records / Columbia) is out on 24th April.
According to the former Stripes frontman, the songs from the new record were "written from scratch", describing the album as "nothing to do with anyone or anything else but my own expression, my own colours on my own canvas" Jack White is prepared to let loose his solo material. Both recorded and produced by White at his own label's Third Man Studios in Nashville, Tennessee, the LP is set to be an exciting one.
Third Man Records will release the single on 7" also featuring non-album B side Machine Gun Silhouette on 7th February. It's available for pre-order here.

What I'm listening to this week.
1. Given To The Wild - The Maccabees
London five piece The Maccabees released their third album entitled Given To The Wild on Monday. A wonderland of guitar pop with echo effects. Joining the dots between second full length Wall Of Arms, Foals' Total Life Forever and Bombay Bicycle Club's A Different Kind Of Fix; Given To The Wild is certain to be one of the albums that define 2012.
2. Helplessness Blues - Fleet Foxes
Beautiful sophomore LP from everybody's favourite American indie folk icons. The follow up to Fleet Foxes' eponymous debut record, the melodies keep on coming from songwriter Robin Pecknold. The way that the band harmonize is astounding, easy listening all round.
