Okay, so I’m a huge White Stripes fan and hearing that Jack White‘s new album had come out was amazing news! In my heart, I was ready for another White Stripes album, but what did I get instead? A break up… great. However, I knew Jack White couldn’t be done for good. and while the White Stripes might be down, Jack was certainly not out.
If you haven’t already found out within seconds of listening to Jack White‘s newest single “I’m Shakin’,” it’s authentically old-school. As seen in the documentary It Might Get Loud where White, The Edge, and Robert Plant discuss music throughout their lives, you probably learned a lot about Jack’s influences and drawn the conclusion that “I’m Shakin'” is an overflow of his love for the blues. It’s a dancey throwback song that makes me second guess whether I was born in the right decade or not.
