'High Ball Stepper' screenshot

Jack White has made no secret of his intentions to get back into the studio.

After all, the Nashville based artist has already confirmed his involved with Neil Young's next project, while new material from The Dead Weather has found its way online.

White's solo material, though, has remained under wraps. A few moments ago, though, his cover was well and truly blown when 'High Ball Stepper' made its introduction.

An instrumental, it features Jack White on ferocious form. Stabbing guitar lines are matched to visceral, electric-shock recording techniques while the honky tonk piano breakdown adds gorgeous shades to the arrangement.

The reason for this sudden burst of activity? Jack White's new solo album 'LAZARETTO' on June 9th.
