Lazaretto is the second studio album by Jack White. It was released on June 10, 2014, through White's own label Third Man Records in association with XL Recordings and Columbia Records. Lazaretto was partly inspired by a collection of short stories, poems, and plays White wrote when he was 19 years old and rediscovered years later in his attic
Like "blunderbuss," a "lazaretto" is an ancient reference that means little in the modern world, a fact that does not escape Jack White, a musician who specializes in blurring lines between past and present. Contrary to his carefully cultivated persona as a raider of lost Americana, White never, ever was a purist: he thrived upon seizing the precise moment when accepted definitions lose all meanings and turn into something new. This tension surfaces on Lazaretto, his second solo album, a record that lives upon the edges of his interests.
Lazaretto" is the first single from Jack White's second solo album of the same name. The live version of the song was recorded, pressed and released on the same day (19 April 2014). On the B-side was a cover of Elvis Presley's song "Power of My Love".

When Lazaretto roars to action with the sweltering, Hammond-driven rocker Three Women, Jack White is on familiar terrain, unleashing a supercharged, garagey blues riff that’s as archetypal as the theme. But when the red, blonde and brunette ladies in question appear in a digital photograph, the anachronism is a striking reminder of White’s gift for recasting classic musical elements in arrestingly modern contexts
Listen free to Jack White – Lazaretto (Three Women, Lazaretto and more). But when the red, blonde and brunette ladies in question appear in a digital photograph, the anachronism is a striking reminder of White’s gift for recasting classic musical elements in arrestingly modern contexts.
Jack White makes heavy, turbulent modern-blues records the same way he pursues his other passion, furniture restoration: with a decisive attention to contour, color scheme and cagey, durable detail. Lazaretto is only White’s second solo album, but he’s played on and produced dozens of records since 1999’s The White Stripes, mostly for his own Third Man label. The guy playing the brute-fuzz guitar in the Gothic-garage instrumental High Ball Stepper doesn’t sound like anyone’s pushover. But as in Three Women, White draws on older blues for these songs: prose and plays he wrote as a teenager about his busted heart and dogged ambition, sawed and planed into new settings and urgency. The kid is still in there.
With "Lazaretto", White's Second Solo Album, the singer leaves his White Stripes days way behind to make something completely different in aWith "Lazaretto", White's Second Solo Album, the singer leaves his White Stripes days way behind to make something completely different in a multi-layered, almost poppy album that is neither risk-taking nor safe but something otherwordly. Typical White thing to do. "THREE WOMEN": The Album opens with a chilly blues-rock, inspired by Blind Willie McTell's "Three Women Blues". Jack White has continued to exceed expectations with Lazaretto, an album that should be an easy commercial and critical success. I would highlight the tracks Three Women, Lazaretto, Would You Fight For My Love?, I Think I Found The Culprit and the albums only instrumental High Ball Stepper.
