The follow-up to 2014's Lazaretto by the 12-time Grammy winner

Jack White's had a lot of time between now and 2014's Lazaretto. He made another record with The Dead Weather, co-wrote "Don't Hurt Yourself" with Beyonce for Lemonade, helped make the roots-music documentary "American Epic" for PBS with T Bone Burnett and Robert Redford, opened a vinyl plant in his hometown and continued to release records on his label Third Man at a fast clip. That's not only a lot of work, but a lifetime's worth of experience to absorb, and that list barely scratches the surface.

Now music's Renaissance Man is uncorking a new solo album he promises is a testament to his creative power and bold artistic ambition. The ambitious work was conceived and written while White holed up in a spartan apartment with no outside world distractions.White exclusively used the same kind of gear he had when he was 15 years old (a quarter-inch four-track tape recorder, a simple mixer, and the most basic of instrumentation). The album explores a remarkable range of sonic terrain — crunching rock ‘n' roll, electro and hard funk, proto punk, hip hop, gospel blues, and even country — all remapped and born anew to fit White's matchless vision and sense of restless experimentation.

White is backed on the album by aremarkable new lineup of musicians that includes: drummer Louis Cato (Beyoncé, Q-Tip, John Legend, Mariah Carey), bassists Charlotte Kemp Muhl (The Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger) and NeonPhoenix (Kanye West, Lil Wayne, Jay-Z), synthesizer players DJ Harrison and Anthony "Brew" Brewster (Fishbone, The Untouchables), keyboardists Neal Evans (Soulive, Talib Kweli, John Scofield) and Quincy McCrary (Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Pitbull), percussionists Bobby Allende (David Byrne, Marc Anthony) and Justin Porée (Ozomatli), and backing vocalists Esther Rose and Ann & Regina McCrary of Nashville's beloved gospel trio, The McCrary Sisters, as well as longtime collaborators like drummers Daru Jones (Nas, Talib Kweli) and Carla Azar (Autolux, Depeche Mode, Doyle Bramhall II). Singer-songwriter C.W. Stoneking also appears, contributing a stirring spoken word performance to the album's "Abulia and Akrasia."
