Published Mar 22, 2018At long last, Jack White's Boarding House Reach is here. While the White Stripes hero would no doubt you rather spin this one on vinyl, you can stream the entire album now.
The record marks the official follow-up to 2014's Lazaretto. And as White recently told Exclaim!, you can expect a change of pace this time out.
"I'm supposed to provoke people's thoughts and people's ideas. That's the whole reason for putting songs on a record and putting them in stores and going on stage. I'm supposed to share something with them," White explained. "And the easy way out would be to cater to the person who just wants me to record 'Fell in Love with a Girl' or 'Lazaretto' over and over again, and then keep writing 55 songs with heavy riffs in them. That's just boring to me. I just don't have the patience to numb my brain that much."
To hear how that all plays out for yourself, you can now fully stream the album below.
Boarding House Reach is out now via Third Man Records/Columbia. You can read Exclaim!'s review of the album here, as well as check out our newly published cover story on Jack White over here.
