Jack White, formerly one- half of Rock n’Roll revival duo White Stripes, is launching his new project and his first proper solo album, which is scheduled for April 2012.

Judging by the sound of the first two songs to be leaked from the album, White’s sound is stripped from electricity and noise. It looks like he approached his songwriting from a more traditional point of view of: country, blue-grass and blues.

Here’s the first track, Love Interruption.

Etta James, R.I.P 1938-2012

One of the greatest singers of all times has sadly passed away last week. Etta James sang the blues, she rocked and rolled, and of course also sang soul, gospel and jazz. Here’s an amazing performance from 1962. She was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in ’93, the Blues Hall of Fame in ’01, and the Grammy Hall of Fame twice (!) - in  ’99 and ’08.

Her amazing talent and unbelievable voice will be missed forever. We’d rather be blind than see her walking away from us.

 

 

Songs in the key of black

Their latest album, Brothers, made the Black Keys somewhat of superstars. With the bar of expectations rising for the follow up, the duo released this first song: an energetic blues rock work out, with a simple yet effective video.

Oh, and the production, as always, is by the one and only Dangermouse.
