Fender Album Pick of the Month: Jack White’s Lazaretto
After securing his spot among the top rock artists of this generation with over a decade helming the White Stripes (hello six Grammy wins), Jack White only continued his hot streak during his stints with the Raconteurs and the Dead Weather.
But it would be foolish to overlook his powerhouse solo efforts. Blunderbuss, his 2012 solo debut, was both a commercial and critical success, debuting at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and earning a total of four Grammy nominations.
Now, White is back with another set of solo tracks with the soul-scorching Lazaretto, a work that seamlessly pulls together a wide-ranging list of influences and even offers a glimpse into the mind of the enigmatic musician.
Hachiko before his burial in 1935; The Japanese dog was famous for his incredible loyalty. His owner passed away and didn’t come home on his usual train one evening in 1925. Hachiko returned to the station every day and waited for him to come home for 9 years until his own death.
