2013 Grammy-nominated for Best Album of The Year!
First solo album by Jack White of the White Stripes
The White Stripes frontman's debut solo LP features the lead single, "Love Interruption," with White accompanied by Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter Ruby Amanfu. White previously described Blunderbuss as "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 presented 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."
Born the youngest of ten children, raised in Southwest Detroit and a resident of Nashville since 2005, White is one of the most prolific and renowned artists of the past 15 years. When the White Stripes started in 1997 no one, least of all Jack, ever expected that a red-and-white two-piece band would take hold in the mainstream world. With the release of 2001’s White Blood Cells the band was thrust on magazine covers and captivating audiences through worldwide touring. “Fell in Love With a Girl” served as the band’s breakthrough hit and its accompanying Michel Gondry Lego clip was chosen by Pitchfork Media as the No. 1 music video of the 2000’s. The release of Elephant in 2003 not only cemented the band’s reputation as a force to be reckoned with, but it also offered the hit “Seven Nation Army” which has since become appropriated as a de facto stadium chant for many sports teams the world over.
