A couple of years ago, Jack White took a break from life as an active touring and recording artist, opting instead to focus on other things.

Watch the "Warcry" promo and full version of "Battle Cry" below!

We've been waiting since 2014 for new music from Jack White and we finally got it with the release of "Battle Cry". The White Stripes frontman is now recording in Nashville, Tennessee, with a follow-up to 2014's "Lazaretto" - his second solo album - in the works.

The 60-second video features Detroit Tigers star Ian Kinsler as "The Hitter", a baseball player apparently haunted by Jack White. Are you indifferent, or are you pumped for White's first new music of 2017?

"I'm going to try to write songs where I can't be heard by the next-door neighbor", said White. Mostly instrumental, save for some chants courtesy of Native American performer and activist Anthony "Thosh" Collins, "Battle Cry" is a two-and-a-half-minute riff dispenser, written to accompany a promotional short film titled War Cry: The Battle Of The Hawk And The Raven.

"In addition to the streaming option, Third Man will drop a limited-edition one-sided gold-colored 7" of "Battle Cry" on Record Store Day, with the single available at Third Man's Detroit and Nashville outposts as well as select independent record stores. He's still selling "Icky Trump" T-shirts on the Third Man webstore!
