Albums Of The Week: Jack White | Entering Heaven Alive

The rock Renaissance man lowers the volume and gets introspective on this mellow and more melodic complement to the audaciously outsized Fear Of The Dawn.


THE EDITED PRESS RELEASE:Entering Heaven Alive is the fifth studio album from Jack White, founding member of The White Stripes, The Raconteurs and The Dead Weather. True to his DIY roots, this record was recorded at White’s Third Man Studio throughout 2021, mastered by Third Man Mastering, and released by Third Man Records.

White has been writing and recording music throughout the entirety of the past several years, creating two entirely distinctive albums — Fear Of The Dawn and its followup Entering Heaven Alive — each defined by different inspirations, different themes and different moods.

Born and raised in Detroit as the youngest of 10 siblings, White’s utilitarian approach filters through all of his work, from self-producing his own music to the Third Man empire he founded (which currently includes a pressing plant, a record label, a photo lab, a lounge/bar, and more), his upholstery and various other art and design pursuits, and anything else that crosses his desk. Over a quarter century into his professional musical career, White’s ability to weave relevant, compelling, and poignant artistry into his music leaves him unparalleled.”
