Jack White starts love fight

Jack White has released a video for his track Would You Fight For My Love?, taken from second solo album Lazaretto.

Released in June, the record was inspired after he found a box of short stories he’d written when he was 19. He explained: “I went, ‘Oh, wow, that’s right – something from half my age.’ I started reading the characters, and they’re so simple and direct. I took them and turned them into characters in songs.

“It was sort of taking from my younger self, which is a strange idea. Something I’ve never done before. Can you work with your younger self and make something new out of that?”

The vinyl edition of Lazaretto includes a number of unique features – a song embedded in the paper label, side one playing from the inside out, and a double-grooved track meaning listeners hear a different start to the song according to where the needle drops onto the disc.

White returns to the UK in November:

Nov 17: Leeds Arena

Nov 18: Glasgow Hydro

Nov 19: London O2 Arena

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
