Posted: July 17, 2022 in MUSIC

Jack White will mark next week’s release of his second new album of the year, “Entering Heaven Alive“, with a pair of exclusive in-store appearances in London. On Friday, July 22nd, White will appear at East London’s Rough Trade East for an acoustic performance and signing, followed by a sold-out show at Union Chapel. The next day (July 23rd), White will perform three separate solo acoustic sets at Third Man London’s Blue Basement.

White has been writing and recording music throughout the entirety of the past several years, creating two entirely distinctive albums in “Fear Of The Dawn” and its follow up, “Entering Heaven Alive” each defined by different inspirations, different themes, different moods.”

“Entering Heaven Alive” is the fifth studio album from Jack White, founding member of The White Stripes, The Raconteurs, and The Dead Weather. True to his DIY roots, this record was recorded at White’s Third Man Studio throughout 2021, mastered by Third Man Mastering, and released by Third Man Records. Jack White after he released “Entering Heaven Alive”his second album of 2022, The eccentric rock star and part-time upholsterer stopped by The Late Show With Stephen Colbert to perform “If I Die Tomorrow”. He also sat down with host Stephen Colbert for a segment called “Maybe Dropping Soon”, in which the two recounted imaginary collaborative albums concocted by the show’s graphics team.

“Entering Heaven Alive” follows White’s first LP of 2022, “Fear of the Dawn”, which he released in April. Each album has its own character, exemplified in the two different versions of the song “Taking Me Back” that appear on the albums.

Both albums were written in a burst of inspiration following an eight-month period of creative silence during the pandemic. White had wanted to release the two albums simultaneously, but was unable to manufacture enough vinyl records due to an ongoing shortage of vinyl.

“I started writing a lot of songs, and they were in all different directions: some incredibly heavy; almost some like speed metal; some sounded so gentle. I ended up with 20, 25 songs,” White told Rolling Stone. “People don’t respond well to double albums these days. I wanted to put them out on the same day, but there’s no way we could press all that vinyl and have them all out on the same day.”
