New Dead Weather album due out in May

on March 20, 2010, 12:23pm

Rarely does major news break during the madness of South by Southwest. But, as we know by now, Jack White isn’t one who usually follows the rules and, because of this, we now have details on The Dead Weather‘s much anticipated sophomore effort. As TwentyFourBit reports and RockItOutBlog! has confirmed in a recent interview with Ben Blackwell from Third Man Records, Jack’s latest project will release its second studio album, Sea of Cowards, on May 11th. The release will be anticipated by single #1, “Die By The Drop”, (w/ b-side “Old Mary”) three days from now, on Tuesday, March 23rd.

Awesome enough, you can listen to 30-second clips of both tracks on right now hopefully soon. Also, head on over to the band’s website, where you can grab a peak at what may or may not be the album’s artwork. Either way, it’s f’ing awesome.

As for other specifics, we suggest you stay tuned for RockItOutBlog!’s aforementioned interview, which we’re told has some other good nuggets. We’ll link to it once it’s up. Update: The interview is embedded below. According to Blackwell, the album will feature 11 tracks and will pick up right where Horehound left off. There’s also some speculation on that Jack + Jay-Z collaboration. Click play now!
