Jack White – Blunderbuss (2012) Lyrics

Blunderbuss is the debut solo album by Jack White, released on April 24, 2012 through White’s own label Third Man Records in association with XL Recordings and Columbia Records. The album was written, recorded and produced entirely by White in 2011. The first single from the album, “Love Interruption” was released on January 30 through White’s website and Third Man Records website.
During a playback for the record in London, England, White said the sessions weren’t planned for anything in particular until the process was further down the line. “I didn’t really know I was doing it until I was doing it; four or five songs in, it felt like it was turning in to something,” he explained. “That’s how it started, I got three songs out of the first session, and it just sorta kept going. I didn’t know if they’d be for a Dead Weather record or a Raconteurs record, but by about the sixth or seventh song it felt like I was making a record of its own, so I just thought ‘I guess I’ll call this Me’."
On several occasions White had no material prepared in advance before going into the studio. Discussing the recording and writing process, he said: "Sometimes I would challenge myself, when I had nothing, to make something up on the spot, although I’d tell the other players that I already had something in mind. I would just sit down at the piano, while six or seven people were standing around, waiting for me to tell them what to do. I’d make up the changes and the tempo as I went along.” (The Quietus).
