Jack White Announces New Album 'Lazaretto,' Confirms Release Date, Streaming First Single
Jack White has officially confirmed June 10 as the release date of his new solo record "Lazaretto."

Due via Third Man Records and Columbia, the album was announced with "High Ball Stepper" single, a blazing instrumental interlaced with captivating piano parts. Stream it below, now.

Rolling Stone delved into the album's title, sharing an interesting history of the word "Lazaretto" in the English dictionary.

As the explanation reads, the word first appeared in mid-16th century with William Thomas' "The Historie of Italie." The scholar wrote about a house two miles from Venice, called the Lazaretto "where people struck with plague are cared for."

As the report further notes, "the term is a corruption of the name of that original building, a converted monastery located on an island outside Venice that reopened as Santa Maria di Nazareth in 1423."

Album pre-orders will kick off on April 30, more info here.
