Today, Jack White has released his first of two new albums this year, FEAR OF THE DAWN, available everywhere now via Third Man Records. White’s second new album of the year, ENTERING HEAVEN ALIVE, will follow on July 22. Featuring acclaimed singles “Taking Me Back” & “Hi-De-Ho (w/ Q-Tip),” as well as rollicking title track “Fear Of The Dawn,” the new album can be enjoyed on all formats, including a variety of limited edition vinyl pressings. Those five limited edition vinyl variants are a midnight blue vinyl version with a screen-printed jacket available to Third Man Records Vault Members in the Vault Novelties store, astronomical blue vinyl at select independent record stores, moon glow white vinyl at Target, and a split moon glow white & astronomical blue LP with an 11”x11” screen printed poster and Third Man Records compilation CD at Rough Trade Records. An exclusive slip mat is also available with the album only at Urban Outfitters. There is also a limited CD Box Set with exclusive t-shirt at thirdmanstore.com and a limited-edition cassette available only via Newbury Comics.

LISTEN TO FEAR OF THE DAWN
PRE-ORDER ENTERING HEAVEN ALIVE

Fans have already begun to celebrate the new album at Third Man’s early listening parties in Nashville, Detroit and London last night. Independent Record stores in the US are also hosting listening parties today with some opening up at midnight before the dawn – head HERE for a full list. If that’s not enough, independent record stores around the world will have limited Fear Of The Dawn screen prints available with the purchase of the new record starting today (while supplies last). See if your local record store has some HERE.

Premiering earlier this week on Apple Music ahead of Fear Of The Dawn’s release, watch Jack’s in-depth interview about the new album and see him explore his hometown of Detroit with Zane Lowe. In case you missed it, this week also saw the launch of The Jack White Twilight Receiver, an AR mobile application that allows fans to enter the musical world of FEAR OF THE DAWN and ENTERING HEAVEN ALIVE. Designed by Lee Martin and available only at www.twilightreceiver.com, the app offered users an exclusive first listen to audio clips from tracks off FEAR OF THE DAWN while venturing outside before sunrise and facing the dawn. The Jack White Twilight Receiver will continue to serve as an augmented reality world where exclusive content will be available to fans as ENTERING HEAVEN ALIVE approaches and over the course of The Supply Chain Issues Tour.

White’s epic Supply Chain Issues Tour officially gets underway tonight with the first of two sold out shows at Detroit’s Masonic Temple Theatre celebrating the release of FEAR OF THE DAWN, and then continues with shows in North America, Europe, and the United Kingdom through late August (full list of dates below).

EARLY PRAISE FOR FEAR OF THE DAWN

“The most focused and exciting White solo record yet, a precision-tooled digital
reconfiguration of his rock bona fides.” – MOJO

“A Beefheartian thunderbolt of an album.” – SPIN

“A wooly wall of sound from the chugging blown-out opener “Taking Me Back”
to the spiraling title track.” – ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY

“The vibrant, caffeinated production and pulsating sonics help these performances explode
with dollops of the frazzled charm, roaring intensity, and sheer musicality we expect
from a Jack White project.” – AMERICAN SONGWRITER (4.5/5)

“There is zero fat in this feast…After this full-on encounter, you might need to
lie down in a darkened room.” – THE SCOTSMAN

“No one does this better because no one else can.” – NORTHERN TRANSMISSIONS

“Feels like a bold step forward…one of the most consistently exciting albums
in (White’s) 25-year-career.” – EXCLAIM! (8/10)

“FEAR OF THE DAWN is proof that rock ‘n’ roll…is in good hands when
the torch is carried by the likes of Jack White.” – BLABBERMOUTH

“White’s new album, his first in four years, is a technological achievement
as much as it is a musical one.” – RIFF
