The White Stripes rocker Jack White says he will debut a solo album on April 24, with entirely new songs written by him and embodying his own sense of self-expression.
"I've put off making records under my own name for a long time but these songs feel like they could only be presented under my name," he said in a statement.
"These songs were written from scratch, had nothing to do with anyone or anything else but my own expression, my own colours on my own canvas."
Recorded in Nashville, Tennessee, Blunderbuss will be the first solo album from White, 36, who gained fame as lead singer, guitarist and pianist in the Grammy-winning two-piece band The White Stripes with his ex-wife Meg on drums.
The band officially split in February 2011 after 14 years together.
The Seven Nation Army singer is also a member of rock bands The Raconteurs and The Dead Weather.
