Jack White Unveils 'Fear Of The Dawn'
Jack White has released his first of two new albums this year, FEAR OF THE DAWN, available everywhere now via Third Man Records. White’s second new album of the year, ENTERING HEAVEN ALIVE, will follow on July 22. Featuring acclaimed singles “Taking Me Back“ & “Hi-De-Ho (w/ Q-Tip),” as well as rollicking title track “Fear Of The Dawn,” the new album can be enjoyed on all formats, including a variety of limited edition vinyl pressings. Those five limited edition vinyl variants are a midnight blue vinyl version with a screen-printed jacket available to Third Man Records Vault Members in the Vault Novelties store, astronomical blue vinyl at select independent record stores, moon glow white vinyl at Target, and a split moon glow white & astronomical blue LP with an 11”x11” screen printed poster and Third Man Records compilation CD at Rough Trade Records. An exclusive slip mat is also available with the album only at Urban Outfitters. There is also a limited CD Box Set with exclusive t-shirt at thirdmanstore.com and a limited-edition cassette available only via Newbury Comics.
Premiering earlier this week on Apple Music ahead of Fear Of The Dawn’s release, watch Jack’s in-depth interview about the new album and see him explore his hometown of Detroit with Zane Lowe. In case you missed it, this week also saw the launch of The Jack White Twilight Receiver, an AR mobile application that allows fans to enter the musical world of FEAR OF THE DAWN and ENTERING HEAVEN ALIVE. Designed by Lee Martin and available only at www.twilightreceiver.com, the app offered users an exclusive first listen to audio clips from tracks off FEAR OF THE DAWN while venturing outside before sunrise and facing the dawn. The Jack White Twilight Receiver will continue to serve as an augmented reality world where exclusive content will be available to fans as ENTERING HEAVEN ALIVE approaches and over the course of The Supply Chain Issues Tour.
