Jack White has announced a new single, Connected By Love, dropping tomorrow—Jan 10, 2018. The long, long-awaited release comes three-and-a-half years after the release of his second solo album, Lazaretto.
The former White Stripes lead and Third Man Records head honcho dropped a brief, cryptic video on social media, announcing the new release. Check it out here:

New music has been rumoured and hinted at for at least two years, with snippets from interviews hinting at a long-winded process of writing and recording. With the recent spout of US festival announcements that include White as a headliner—Governors Ball, Shaky Knees and Boston Calling among others—new music was inevitable.
Connected by Love will be premiered by Zane Lowe at 12 p.m. ET (that’s 4 a.m. on January 11 for us in Australia). Presumably, it’s the first single from a release first teased in December, when a four-minute video of musical snippets, photographs and cryptic imagery, titled Servings and Portions from my Boarding House Reach, showed up online.
