It’s been four years since Jack White released a full-length album, his last being Boarding House Reach in 2018. But on Thursday (Nov. 11), the rocker announced he’s making up for that gap with two upcoming albums both arriving next year on his Third Man Records.
Fear of the Dawn is out April 8, followed by Entering Heaven Alive on July 22.
Fear of the Dawn is currently available to pre-order on CD and vinyl, for which there are five limited-edition vinyl variants: midnight blue for Third Man Records Vault Members, astronomical blue for select indie retailers, moon glow white for Target, a split moon glow white and astronomical blue for Rough Trade Records, and an exclusive slip mat included with the vinyl sold at Urban Outfitters.
White wrote these two albums over the past several years, with the announcement promising “two entirely distinctive albums … each defined by different inspirations, different themes, different moods.”
Already this year, White oversaw the opening of Third Man Records London (TMR’s first store outside the U.S.), launched Jack White Art & Design, a new site showcasing the artist’s creative output over the past 20+ years and released hist latest single “Taking Me Back.”
The music video for the track arrived Thursday alongside the album announcement and can be viewed below.
