Jack White lines up solo album for April release

It's been nearly a year since the White Stripes announced their dissolution, and now Jack White is ready to officially strike out on his own.

His solo debut album, "Blunderbuss," is scheduled for an April 24 release, reports Billboard. The first single, "Love Interruption," is currently streaming online, and will be available to purchase digitally starting tonight at midnight (9 p.m. PT).

If you prefer vinyl, that'll be made available on February 7.

White, who crafted "Blunderbuss" at his Third Man Studio in Nashville, explained in a statement that it's an album he "couldn't have released until now."

"I've put off making records under my own name for a long time, but these songs feel like they could only be represented under my name," he said. "These songs were written from scratch, had nothing to do with anyone or anything else but my own expression, my own colors on my own canvas."

    I heard they might be touring with Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch. Justin Bieber is the opening act.

    i'm still wondering what he was doing on the 'It might get Loud" movie. He stood out like a turd in a punch bowl.

    David Gilmour, Keef, Eddie Van Halen, or someone with more talent should have been there instead of Jag Blag.

    jest sayin'

    Yes, the Raconteurs and the Dead Weather are still together. But everyone in those bands are currently busy working with the other bands they're in, so that means a new Greenhornes album is on the way! (I hope). But I'd like to see a new Raconteurs album as well.

    I like to consider myself a big fan of Jack White but I didn't even know he was doing a solo project. I'm pretty excited about it, would still love to see a new album from Raconteurs (are they even still together?) or Dead Weather
