Jack White – Entering Heaven Alive (Third Man Records)
A 12-time Grammy® Award-winner and one of the great rock conceptualists of the 21st century, Jack White returns with his fifth studio album, Entering Heaven Alive. Staying true to his roots, this record was recorded at White’s Third Man Studio throughout 2021, mastered by Third Man Mastering, and released by Third Man Records. Entering Heaven Alive is White’s second album of 2022, following Fear Of The Dawn which peaked at #4 on the U.S. Billboard Albums Chart. Said Rolling Stone, “If Fear of the Dawn had a law-abiding next-door neighbor, it would be Entering Heaven Alive, which presents us with his latest and perhaps inevitable variation: earnest, unplugged Jack.” His latest album serves as a continuation of his musical genius – featuring a myriad of tracks that are sure to appeal to tried-and-true rock audiences, as well as new fans in search of their latest rock music fix.
