White has also let go the dirty, instrumental track “High Ball Stepper” which you can listen to below. Its video was directed by Ben Swank & James Cathcart.
If you’re lucky to be a member of the the Third Man Record’s Vault, there’s a limited edition of the album for you pressed on split-color blue-and-white vinyl. The bundle also includes blue vinyl 7-inch with two early demos of songs that appear on Lazaretto, a 40-page hard bound Lazaretto book, and a letter-pressed linen postcard.
White has been busying self with no small number of projects since his debut 2011 solo album Blunderbuss. Recently, he worked with Neil Young on his solo album Write a Letter Home, dusted off his group The Dead Weather earlier this year, and even has a whole tribute album dedicated to him.
