After the rather saddening end of the White Stripes last year the world’s been watching Jack White, waiting for his next move, but now, thanks to Twitter, everyone just found out he’s releasing a solo album.
The title has already been decided, Blunderbuss, to be released on 24th April on his own label Third Man. Exciting stuff.

It’s already interesting.
