Hear Jack White’s Heavy New Single ‘Battle Cry’

Written by Tom Williams on April 7, 2017

Jack White (of The White Stripes fame) has just released a new song called ‘Battle Cry’ — a two-and-a-half minute instrumental which is his first new material for 2017.

The song (below) features a weighted guitar riff, marching percussion and a crowd of people clapping. Its cover art features an arrow, but little else is known about the track’s creation or meaning. That said, it obviously has some political weight behind it.

White released his latest solo album Lazaretto in 2014. Since then, he’s featured on A Tribe Called Quest’s final album and written the theme song for NBC’s variety show Maya & Marty.

It’s unclear if ‘Battle Cry’ will feature on an upcoming Jack White album. Stream the track in full, below.
