Throwback: Jack White-Love Interruption


Jack White’s first solo album Blunderbuss  launched with the blues ballad “Love Interruption.” His previous group The White Stripes parted ways in 2011 and the lo-fi alternative rock sound was replaced with a heavily acoustic flavor. “Love Interruption” was a duet with vocals from Ruby Amanfu and together they described love using violent metaphors and torrid imagery. White directed the video of him and Amanfu sharing the stage with his band with a hazy blue background. Fans accepted White’s reinvention and “Love Interruption” was the first signpost of Blunderbuss’s success. The album debuted with Top Ten placements on charts around the world and reached platinum status in Canada.  Blunderbuss received four Grammy nominations including the coveted Album Of The Year category. “Love Interruption” earned a permanent place in White’s live sets and also appears on Acoustic Recordings 1998-2016

Jack White released his fourth solo album Fear Of The Dawn in March of 2022. The album was promoted with the Cab Calloway-inspired single “Hi-De-Ho” featuring Q-Tip. White is releasing his fifth studio album Entering Heaven Alive on July 22nd. and the video for “If I Die Tonight” was unveiled in June. Ruby Amanfu received a Grammy nomination in 2022 for Song Of The Year because of her co-writing “A Beautiful Noise” which was recorded by Alicia Keys and Brandi Carlile to inspire American voter participation.
