Jack White has shared two wild tracks from his upcoming albums: "Hi-De-Ho" from Fear of the Dawn and "Queen of the Bees" from Entering Heaven Alive.

"Hi-De-Ho" is perhaps the wildest of White's many experiments, beginning with dramatic overture before shifting into a rap verse by A Tribe Called Quest's Q-Tip, and finally some yelping vocals by White himself.

"Queen of the Bees" is mellower but similarly unexpected, as White adds plonky marimbas to a bouncy cabaret number full of wonky organ and curious sound effects.

Fear of the Dawn is White's self-described "heavy" album, which also includes the recent singles "Taking Me Back" and "Fear of the Dawn." It's out on April 8. The "Sunday morning" album Entering Heaven Alive, featuring "Love Is Selfish," follows on July 22. White is hitting the road in support of the albums this year.

Listen to "Hi-De-Ho" and "Queen of the Bees" below. These two songs are being released on a tri-colour 7-inch, sold exclusively through Third Man Records' Detroit store starting April 9.
