This week marked the release of Jack White’s first single off of his upcoming solo album ‘Boarding House Reach.’ The song, titled ‘Connected by Love’ is expressive and slow-rolling. A hint of what to expect from the third solo Jack White album. The song features lyrics that are close to whispers, begging for redemption and forgiveness before a stunning gospel choir kicks in for the chorus.
The sombre and busy blues track was partnered with a theatrical video which was shot in Los Angeles and Nashville, and directed by Pasqual Gutierrez, and presents how Jack White interprets his own lyrics. Showing how he visions love.
The video features a mother’s adoration for her children, twins playing in a field, a daughter caring for a fragile parent and also a teen who is confused by hard decisions that he has made.
The single is available for purchase or streaming now, alongside it’s accompanying track ‘Respect Commander’. A 7” vinyl version is also available through Jack White’s record label, Third Man Records, which shall be hitting independent record stores this week around the world.
