2018 just got a whole lot better! Jack White has announced his new upcoming album titled Boarding House Reach with the release of the first single titled “Connected By Love”. Not only did White record and produce the song in three different cities, he worked with musicians who would normally play in more of a hip-hop/R&B style: drummer Louis Cato (Beyoncé/Q-Tip/John Legend), bassist Charlotte Kemp Muhl (The Ghost Of A Saber Tooth Tiger), keyboardist Neal Evans (Soulive/Talib Kweli/John Scofield), and percussionist Bobby Allende (David Byrne), and along with backing vocalists Ann and Regina McCrary of gospel trio The McCrary Sisters. You’ll definitely hear a gospel influence in the song.
White also released a second track off the album titled “Respect Commander” where he loses the gospel sound and instead gives us some sweet percussion (and of course, a sick guitar solo). At this point, I can’t decide which track I like better but I’m beyond stoked for the new album. No release date just yet, but we’ll keep you posted. Check out both tracks below:
