Jack White just dropped his new song "Over and Over and Over" from his upcoming LP Boarding House Reach. The compilation will be released on March 23.
"Over and Over and Over" was written 13 years ago for The White Stripes, and White recorded it with the Raconteurs. However, White did not like the finished product so he set "Over and Over and Over" aside.
"I was just gonna hand it over to my grandchildren. It was sort of my white whale. I chased it and chased it, and finally, all of a sudden, it worked," said White.
Other songs featured in Boarding House Reach are "Connected By Love," "Respect Commander," and "Corporation." Following the release of White's upcoming album, the 42-year-old singer will embark on an extensive tour in support of Boarding House Reach.
Jack White Talks About 'Boarding House Reach'
Last month, White opened up about the work he put into his upcoming album. He said that he challenged himself to record all of his songs within just three days. He also wanted to collaborate with artists he has never worked with before like Jay-Z, Kanye West, and Kendrick Lamar.
"I had no idea if we'd be able to communicate musically. It could've been a recipe for disaster. I think it would scare the hell out of most people, so it was very enticing to me," said White.
White's attempt to collaborate with mostly hip-hop artists worked. The next challenge he faced had to do with condensing the tracklist for his upcoming album.
"It almost hurt my feelings to condense some of those songs, but I wanted to make it relatable in 2018. The entire record, to me, is incredibly modern. I wanted to take punk, hip-hop and rock & roll, and funnel it all into a 2018 time capsule," explained White.
