Jack White readies solo single release

on August 04, 2009, 5:23pm

Earlier today, on our Twitter, I joked, “Wow, today has been wild. First, Modest Mouse. Now, Them Crooked Vultures. All that’s missing is a Radiohead world tour announcement!”

While we didn’t get the latter (at least not yet)… we got something pretty damn close.

According to a press release (via Pitchfrok), Jack White will go solo on August 11th with the release of a single entitled “Fly Farm Blues”. Due out on both on one-sided 7″ and digitally via the musician’s personal imprint, Third Man Records, the song was reportedly penned at the request of director Davis Guggenheim, who has been working with White, along with U2’s the Edge and Led Zeppelin’s Jimmy Page, on the guitar rock documentary, It Might Get Loud.

Of course, this news jives with White’s recent comments to Music Connection that he hopes to start working on a solo album by the end of 2009.

As if the man hasn’t done enough for us already…
