Releases solo debut

24 Apr, 2012

Jack White Blunderbuss CoverWhite releases his solo debut, Blunderbuss. The album includes 12 original tracks and a cover of a Rudy Toombs song. Third Man Recordings, XL Recordings, and Columbia release the album on CD and vinyl. White tells NPR:

I came up from growing up with a lot of Catholic guilt, a lot of punk rock, hipster guilt in the later years where I think people have thrown a lot of things on me. Where I always felt like I’m not supposed to tell the horn section what to play or I don’t want to come off egotistical or like a control freak to tell a piano player to change the rhythm to waltz time now because it will make this thing happen. But now I’m in a position where I own the studio and the people who come in to work on music. They want to make something beautiful happen and somebody needs to direct it, and I feel like … forget all that guilt.
