Jack White has released a surprise new single called “Battle Cry“.
Aside from a few chants of “Hey!” at the start, the track is an instrumental – listen below.
It is unconfirmed as to whether this is a one-off single or a teaser for his third solo album. White is currently recording in Nashville, Tennessee.
Speaking to The New Yorker last month (March) for a rare profile feature, White revealed he has a private bowling alley in his house in which he keeps a bowling ball for Bob Dylan.
The New Yorker‘s Alec Wilkinson writes that “each dedicated ball has a name tag, and some of the balls are painted fancifully—Bob Dylan’s has a portrait of John Wayne.”
The piece also reveals a host of rare items that White owns, including Lead Belly’s New York City arrest record, James Brown‘s driving license from the ’80s and a copy of Action Comics No. 1 from June 1938, which includes Superman’s first published appearance.
