"BOARDING HOUSE REACH" sees Jack White expanding his musical palate with perhaps his most ambitious work thus far, a collection of songs that are simultaneously timeless and modern. Written and conceived while holed up in a spartan apartment with no outside distractions, White replicated the identical environment and used the same gear as when he was a 15 year old (a quarter-inch four-track tape recorder, a simple mixer, and the most basic of instrumentation) to pen sketches of the album’s songs. The album explores a remarkable range of sonic terrain -- crunching rock 'n' roll, electro and hard funk, proto punk, hip hop, gospel blues, and even country -- all remapped and born anew to fit White's matchless vision and sense of restless experimentation. "BOARDING HOUSE REACH" is a testament to the breadth of Jack White's creative power and his bold artistic ambition.
"BOARDING HOUSE REACH" is heralded by the rapidly acclaimed new single, "Connected By Love" b/w "Respect Commander," which is available now digitally worldwide and as a physical 7-inch vinyl single pressed at Third Man Pressing in Detroit, MI.
"Connected By Love" is accompanied by a brand-new music video from director Pasqual Gutierrez -- watch it now HERE. The single was greeted with rapturous global applause upon its arrival, with Billboard declaring the song "a classic White confessional blues burner," and Entertainment Weekly calling it "a searing, organ-lined plea to a former flame." NPR's Bob Boilen wrote, "it's a blend of old guitar blues that is simultaneously on the edge of rock's horizon." "The four-year wait is over," says Rolling Stone -- Jack is back with the "blistering first single" from "BOARDING HOUSE REACH".
