Jack White - Fear Of The Dawn

Ferociously heavy, wonderfully weird.

Jack White - Fear Of The Dawn
Jack White’s decision to release two albums in 2022 is not, as one might imagine at first glance, a late hop on the ‘double album’ trend of a few years back. Nor is it an attempt to carve an ‘era’ for himself (yes, an odd thought for an artist for whose public persona the word ‘cantankerous’ may well have begun applying a few decades too early, but then again this is also an album cycle which began with a Call of Duty trailer, so…). Instead, it seems a way for the guitarist to be able to show both sides of his solo self simultaneously. For while The White Stripes had its infamously self-imposed limitations of various rules of three, and both The Raconteurs and The Dead Weather are, thanks to their respective co-conspirators, distinct in sound, solo Jack White has somehow come to mean different things for different people; a Jack of a few trades, if you will.
